Amid magnificent gardens and vast landscapes hides the charming residence of Spencer’s. Althorp House is built among 450 acres of parkland and brings a delightful and tranquil experience to its visitors. The house was a home for the Spencer’s family for the last 19 generations and represents the vast identity of its inhibitors.
The estate and the house are open to you throughout the summer, where you can experience the wealth and marvelous inner interiors with its fine collections of furniture, paintings, photographs and ceramics. The stable block was converted into Princess Diana memorial site, as it was her early childhood house and she was buried in the grounds of the estate. There is an annual event held from 13th until 16th December called the ‘’Winter Warmer’’, where you can have a tour guide to show you around the estate while you savour wine and Christmas cakes.
