Clandon is a smaller National Trust property and as other reviewers have said, it is not a destination to spend the whole day there but if it is not too far out of your way, worth a trip. The house itself is quite interesting and there are a fair number of rooms to look around. I have to say that... More

We came across Clandon Park whilst travelling to another NT property, and without plans, found it to be ideal for a couple of hours, it's not the biggest NT property. Clandon Park is easy to find via the A247 from either the A3 or A25. The site has plenty of free parking and as NT members I am not aware... More

This is a very stately mansion, which made an interesting visit despite the fact that some rooms are being renovated. The guides were friendly and well informed. We had a pleasant lunch in the restaurant. My husband recommends the hot beef sandwich! My favourite moment was the curious and beautiful Maori meeting house in the gardens.

On a sunny day Clandon House makes for a great morning or afternoon out. The 18th century house set in glorious grounds is well worth a visit.

Nice house with the usual excellent guides. Not much in the garden really unless you particularly want to see a Maori hut. Also a nice little regimental museum. I didn't like the dark cafe but there's a nice cafe in the garden centre further down the drive.

Visited with a friend, thankgoodness i am a member because my poor friend paid £12 to get in and rooms were empty and NT staff said they were cleaning the place and renovating it! I understand these antiques need cleaning but why not do so when national properties are closed for winter and not when properties are open! You don't... More

A smaller property so quickly seen, the military museum was the most interesting part. the Maori meeting house is about the best feature in the garden.

Clandon Park is a nice home from 1792, and most of the home is open to visitors, with a good deal of interesting family history on show. The gardens are pleasant but relatively small by country house standards. In the basement is a small but interesting Museum of the Surrey Infantry Museum. A very nice hour or two outing, but... More

The house is very lovely, although a lot of the rooms were being restored when we visited. The gardens are also pleasant and the Maori house is interesting. The only thing that ruined our visit was the lady from the National Trust, who tried to literally bully us into becoming a member! I have never encountered this before. She just... More
