From start to finish, both the staff and the venue itself were an absolute dream. The marble hall for the reception was completely stunning, and getting married in the tapestry room was absolutely amazing! The tapestries were so gorgeous - the whole thing was just the best ever!! It was May 2014 and the hottest day of the year so... More

Whatever time of the year you choose to visit Clandon Park, you will enjoy a delightful and gently undulating stroll through meadows, woodlands, and along covered paths. There's even a nice little pond to visit, inhabited by lilies and a few friendly ducks. I'm sure the house must be interesting to visit too, but the weather was far too nice... More

Liked this place although the volunteer in one room was *coughs* somewhat xenophobic with remarks about 'good' immigrants (?!) who donated porcelain to the Trust! Hose burned down about a week later...

Chandon park is no more due to the fire. We use to visit on a regular basis when the children were small. My daughter was married there so very sad it it now gutted. I believe many artefacts were saved, including rare war documents, so maybe it will be restored to it's former glory by the national trust. I do... More

So sad to this this burning on the news. I've been bringing my children here for years. To see it consumed by fire brought a tear to my eye as it looked like part of their youth was disappearing. The atmosphere this building and gardens used to create was one of solitude healing and relaxation. It will always hold a... More

Luckily we visited before the fire, it was very interesting. Hopefully they managed to save as much as possible. Gardens are worth a look, is NT going to rebuild ??

What a great shame! Gone up in flames! Another piece of British heritage lost! I visited here a few years ago, and loved the place. The Gardens were amazing and the house was a treasure trove. I just hope they managed to salvage some of that priceless furniture!! I would say make it a definite stop on your travels round... More

I find it hard to believe that the building's susceptibility to rapid spread of fire couldn't be foreseen and addressed. There are many fire prevention options - some of which are quite expensive. But the NT's main purpose is to preserve irreplaceable items so it should do whatever is necessary. Fill voids, inert gas systems, sprinklers (water tank on roof... More

Great shame that the recent fire totally gutted the building. Hope some of the contents can be shown elsewhere by the NT.

Clandon garden centre is still up and running. Please look out for the clandon garden being open late summer (supposedly) as the large lawns make a great place for kids to run around. Great space. :) the national trust have revived so many lost cause buildings that they will revive this one too. Put it on your must see in... More
