The Clandon Park project: a timeline

The Marble Hall at Clandon Park

Since the night of the fire on April 29 2015 we’ve been through many extraordinary moments, both tough times and triumphs. The Clandon Park restoration project represents one of the most significant and ambitious projects the National Trust has ever embarked upon. An enormous undertaking, we now have the opportunity not only to show our respect for the heritage of the past, but also to create a new legacy for the future.  

Here you can follow a timeline of events from the early days of the project, through each major milestone, right up to the present day. We’ll continue to post developments here and update you with our progress on the journey towards our ultimate goal, welcoming visitors back to Clandon Park.

Spring garden in bloom

For the first time in two years visitors are able to enjoy the magnificent sight of a traditional Clandon springtime. Forming one of the best pre-1930s collections in the country, thousands upon thousands of daffodils burst into bloom each year.

Despite the fire one of our most popular events goes ahead in the beautiful setting of Holy Trinity Church, Guildford. A long-standing favourite in the Clandon Park social calendar, the brilliant Oxford Singers joined us for their 31st year performing in support of Clandon.
