Our scheme for the renovation of Clandon Park honours its rich architectural and cultural history whilst providing an opportunity for a dynamic and transporting visitor experience. It will demonstrate the National Trust’s commitment to conservation in a changing world with a creative, progressive, and inclusive way forward.
The landscape experience is extended by a new curvilinear Arrival Path which brings visitors to a west forecourt where they will enter at a new loggia. Re-grading at the south garden allows the piano nobile to be read as Leoni intended, and a new café terrace and topiary maze deepen connections to the landscape. The Marble Hall and other principal rooms are restored to their pre-fire splendour whilst new spaces for changing exhibitions, events and classes provide opportunities for further learning and engagement. A new top-lit stair rises through the building connecting all floors and allowing people to experience Clandon’s layers of history.
