Althorp House is the historic home of the Spencer family and where Diana, Princess of Wales grew up and is buried. (Please note the exhibition about her life closed in 2013).
In the main house, Althorp has one of Europe's finest private collections of furniture, paintings, photographs and ceramics. There are 19 rooms in the House to explore, including some of the Spencer family's private apartments. Charles, 9th Earl Spencer has been in charge for several decades of the Stately Home's 500-year history, but has striven in that time to make a positive difference.
