Spencer House was built 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 restored, half acre garden with magnificent views of The Green Park.

This magnificent eighteenth-century private palace has regained the full splendour of its late eighteenth-century appearance after a painstaking ten year restoration undertaken by RIT Capital Partners plc.

Designed by John Vardy and James \"Athenian\" Stuart, the State Rooms were amongst the first neo-classical interiors in Europe. Visitors can see a fine collection of eighteenth- century paintings and furniture specially assembled for the House, including five major Benjamin West paintings graciously lent by Her Majesty The Queen.
