Since 1508, this majestic mansion has been a part of history; as much renowned for its discreet and magnificent hosting as for the historic influence of the family it has housed
John Spencer – who built the house in 1508 – wrote as a stipulation in his Will that Althorp must be used as a place of entertainment. It is therefore entirely in keeping with his wish that Althorp today provides the setting for events that are by turn prestigious, polished and hugely enjoyed.
In recent years, Althorp House and Park have been the venue for some of the most high profile, unique and truly unforgettable occasions, including a lunch party for the late President Mandela and a sensational summer ball for President Gorbachev’s and his children’s charity.
Whether you are here for a lunch party, a wedding or for several nights – whatever your requirements, Althorp will be exclusively yours throughout your stay.
This inspiring venue is a unique home with a very proud heritage and centuries of experience in entertainment. In that time, Althorp have learnt how to do things exceptionally well.
