Clandon Park House is a grand 18th-century Palladian mansion with marble entrance hall, superb porcelain collection and unique Maori Meeting House.
Built by Venetian architect Giacomo Leoni for the 2nd Lord Onslow in the 1720s. The magnificent interiors remain faithful to the period featuring original plaster ceilings by Giuseppe Artari. The house also contains a superb collection of 18th-century furniture, porcelain and textiles.
While the wider parkland is still in the hands of the Onslow family, the mansion and seven acres of intimate gardens were given to the National Trust in 1956. The gardens are home to a small parterre, the walled Dutch Garden and Hinemihi, a Maori meeting house brought back from New Zealand by the 4th Earl in 1892.
