Garden Open Days
The garden at Spencer House will be open to the public on just three days this summer. To join us for a special combined tour of the House and garden on either May 27, June 24, or July 15, please select your preferred dates and times available below.
Originally designed in the eighteenth century by Henry Holland (son-in-law to Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown), the half-acre garden was then and still remains among the grandest in the West End. Restored since 1990 by RIT Capital Partners, under the Chairmanship of Lord Rothschild, the garden, with a delightful view of the adjacent Royal Park, now evokes its original layout. Paths and lawn have been reinstated along with carefully selected plants and shrubs appropriate to the late eighteenth and early nineteenth-centuries. Garden Historian Todd Longstaffe-Gowan advised on the restoration and will be giving introductory talks to visitors on the day. The Gardener will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have and a plant list will be provided for you to take away.
