£12.50 – Young Georgians
Spencer House is a rare survival of an eighteenth-century London aristocratic mansion. Built for the first Earl Spencer between 1756 and 1766, the house and it’s exquisitely crafted interiors are the work of two major architects, John Vardy and James ‘Athenian’ Stuart, and thus reflect the transition from the Palladian style toward neo-classicism.
After 1926 the building, with most of its original contents and fittings removed, was let to a series of commercial tenants and entered a period of neglect and decline. In 1985 the lease was acquired by RIT Capital Partners plc and an ambitious ten-year restoration project was carried out, under the chairmanship of Lord Rothschild. A large team of specialist craftspeople, historians, conservators and designers brought the interiors of the State Rooms back to their late-eighteenth century splendour. Spencer House is now regularly open to the public for tours and as a venue for private event hire.
Victoria Wilson, Collections Manager of Spencer House, will be kindly hosting this tour for Young Georgians. The visit may be followed by food/drinks nearby.
