Spencer House


Private palace built in 1756-66 for the first Earl Spencer, an ancestor of Diana, Princess of Wales (1961-1997). Eight magnificently restored state rooms furnished with antique and neo-classical furniture. Designed by John Vardy and James 'Athenian' Stuart, these rooms were some of the first neo-classical interiors in Europe. Stuart's superb gilded furniture has been returned to its original location in the Painted Room by courtesy of the V&A and English Heritage.
