Spencer House, a rather grand house overlooking Green Park has announced that it will open its gardens to the public for two days this year.

Originally designed in the eighteenth-century by Henry Holland (son-in-law to Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown), the half acre garden was then and still remains among the grandest in the West End.

Restored since 1990, the garden, with a view of the adjacent Green Park, now evokes its original layout. Paths and lawn have been reinstated along with carefully selected plants and shrubs appropriate to the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

The two open days are on Sunday 28th May and Sunday 4th June, and include a tour of the building as well.

Spencer House itself was recognised as one of the most ambitious aristocratic town houses ever built in London and is the city’s only great eighteenth-century private palace to survive intact.

The house tours are for eight of the state rooms.

The tours of the house and gardens cost £16, and can be booked here.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
