Pour en savoir plus sur Spencer House :
From its conception, Spencer House was recognised as one of the most ambitious aristocratic town houses ever built in London and is, today, the city’s only great eighteenth-century private palace to survive intact.
Spencer House was built in 1756-66 for John, first Earl Spencer, an ancestor of Diana, Princess of Wales (1961-97). Situated in the heart of St James’s, Spencer House is a short distance from St James’s Palace, Buckingham Palace and the Palace of Westminster, and has a splendid terrace and garden with magnificent views of Green Park.
I know not in England a more beautiful piece of architecture…in richness, elegance and taste, superior to any house I have seen.” Arthur Young 1772
