Visitors on the walkway at Clandon Park

Clandon Park 

A visit to Clandon Park today is unlike a visit to any other country house. Once you’ve had the chance to explore the dramatic spaces opened up by the fire and the layers of history revealed, you’ll never look at a stately home in the same way again. You can book your place on a brand-new tour, inside the house at Clandon Park. Specially developed to bring to life some of our discoveries since the fire, you’ll be immersed in the house and its hidden stories. Booking essential.
