Clandon Park appeal

Following the terrible fire in April 2015 that left our 18th-century Surrey mansion in ruins, we now look to its future

Clandon Park fire

The fire reduced the 18th-century mansion near Guildford in Surrey built for Lord Onslow to a shell but the external walls remain largely intact. Clandon Park was one of the country’s most complete examples of a Palladian mansion and contained an important collection of 18th-century furniture, porcelain and textiles. You can help our future plans by donating to the Clandon Park appeal.

How the appeal adds up

  • The fire in 2015 damaged 95% of Clandon's interior
  • We were able to save over 400 artefacts
  • The ground floor will be restored to its original 1720s design
" Our plans involve returning parts of the house to its 18th-century glory whilst at the same time creating a building of beauty and relevance for the 21st century."
- Helen Ghosh, Director-General
