A FAMILY HOME, A REPOSITORY OF GREAT ART, AND A SIMPLY GLORIOUS SPOT TO SPEND A DAY BEING INSPIRED
Visitors are invited to explore this wonderful house, by guided tour, discovering beautiful interiors and one of Europe’s finest private collections of furniture, pictures and ceramics.
Explore the magnificent park, take a stroll through the remodelled gardens and perhaps take the opportunity to reflect by the peaceful Round Oval lake.
In the Stables Block, built by Roger Morris in 1732 in the Anglo-Palladian style, enjoy refreshments in the Stables Café, browse the Gift Shop and explore the Spencer Exhibition – exploring how the Spencer family has shaped Althorp and its treasures.
It is fair to say that the story of Althorp is also the story of the Spencers, and vice versa.
