Description
Clandon Park

Grand 18th-century Palladian mansion

Built c.1730 by the Venetian architect Giacomo Leoni, Clandon is notable for its magnificent two-storeyed Marble Hall. The house is filled with the superb collection of 18th-century furniture, porcelain, textiles and carpets acquired in the 1920s by the connoisseur Mrs David Gubbay. It also contains the Ivo Forde Meissen collection of Italian comedy figures and a series of Mortlake tapestries. The attractive gardens contain a parterre, grotto, sunken Dutch garden and a Maori meeting house with a fascinating history
