“...it is clear to see that the revival of Spencer House has been a triumph, no less than its restoration, and not only for the house itself, but for London at large. The city is so much the richer for it.”
Joseph Friedman, 2011.
Plan a Visit
From its conception, Spencer House was recognised as one of the most ambitious aristocratic town houses ever built in London and is the city’s only great eighteenth-century private palace to survive intact. This magnificent aristocratic palace has regained the full splendour of its late eighteenth-century appearance after a painstaking ten-year restoration undertaken by RIT Capital Partners plc, under the Chairmanship of Lord Rothschild.
Eight State Rooms are open to the public for viewing on Sundays throughout the year.
Groups of 15-60 people may also visit on Monday mornings. For special access tours outside of these hours please contact the Tours Team on 020 7514 1958 or email@example.com
The House is only a few minutes away from Green Park underground station, or a 10-minute bus ride from Victoria station. There are no parking facilities provided for coaches or cars although there are many NCP car parks nearby.
To walk from Green Park underground station (about 3 minutes): Exit the tube station on the south side, walk down Queen’s Walk for a few hundred yards. Turn left through the small alleyway off the left side of Queen’s Walk for about 150 yards. Turn right and Spencer House will be in front of you.
