Claremont Fan Court School, Claremont Drive, Esher, Surrey, KT10 9LY
Palladian House designed by Capability Brown for Clive of India. It later became the home of George IV's daughter, Princess Charlotte, on her marriage to Leopold of Saxe-Coburg. It was a favourite family home of the young Queen Victoria, who spent many of her birthdays at Claremont. The exiled French King and Queen Louis-Philippe and Marie-Amelie lived here after the 1848 Revolution.
Unfortunately at present there is no wheelchair access to the Mansion owing to the flight of steps leading to the front door.
Max 25 people per tour/session. Tea and home-made cakes available in the Great Room and on the lawn behind the Mansion.
The school is situated next to the National Trust property Claremont Landscape Gardens. Between 11am and 5pm the gate near the Belvedere between the two properties will be open . Map link.
