Clandon Park House The Marble Hall Sunken Garden
The Venetian architect Giacomo Leoni built Clandon Park in the Early 1730's for the 2nd Lord Onslow. Since being presented to the National Trust, the Mansion has been extensively restored and redecorated. The House has magnificent rooms including the two - storied Marble Hall, one of the finest examples in Europe. The Hall makes exciting introduction to the house and breathtaking backdrop for any function or event.

The house interior tells the Onslows' story.The Onslows were a political family and one which provided the House of Commons with three Speakers whose portraits are displayed in the Speakers Parlour. There's also a room calling itself the Onslow Museum. This room is mainly dedicated to artifacts relating to the 4th Earl Onslow, who was governor of New Zealand between 1889 and 1892. A magnificent chieftains cloak is on show, presented by a local chieftain to Onslow as a Christening present for his son.
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 and bequested to the National trust, and also contains the Ivo Forde Meissen collection of Italian comedy figures and a series of Mortlake tapestries..

A garden was added in the late nineteenth century, with a parterre, grotto, sunken Dutch garden and a Maori meeting house. One of only four outside New Zealand, it was brought back in 1892 by the 4th Earl of Onslow, who was Governor there. The park has fine entrance gates and a lake.
