About The Tour
This is a wonderful opportunity to privately view one of the last remaining examples of the grand 18th Century aristocratic townhouse.
Enjoy a glass of champagne or tea and coffee on arrival before your private tour of this palatial house steeped in history. Built for the first Earl Spencer, an ancestor of Diana, Princess of Wales, the Spencer family last lived here in 1926. The house has undergone some restoration and was reopened by Princess Diana in 1991.
Today hear the history of the house and stories of its famous occupants, as you wander through the sumptuous state rooms with opulent interiors and fine paintings adorning the walls. See the Great Room, where grand receptions would have been held for high society. Another gem is the Painted Room, complete with original armchairs and settees by James Athenian Stuart, a compelling figure in British Design.
Weather permitting, you also have exclusive access to the gardens. This tour can be taken on its own or as part of a private London tour.
Some advance notice is usually required.
