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 in 2019, discovering beautiful interiors and one of Europe’s finest private collections of furniture, pictures and ceramics.
In the Stables Block, built by Roger Morris in 1733 in the Anglo-Palladian style, enjoy refreshments in the Stables Café, browse the Gift Shop and explore our seasonal exhibitions. 2018 welcomed a brand new exhibition; The Spencers: The History of an English Family.
This beautifully thought out, brand new, exhibition charted the story of the Spencer family from Medieval sheep-farmers, through the dynasty of politicians and strong female figures, to the present today. The vast majority of the items shown here were not usually on public view – from great treasures through to intimate family pieces.
This intriguing exhibition – located in the exquisite, ironstone, Stables next to Althorp – illustrated 500 years of the Spencer family and their contribution to English public life.
