Built in the mid-18th century for the first Earl Spencer, an ancestor of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, Spencer House is the city's most ambitious aristocratic town house ever built and the only private palace from that period that remains intact to this day. Although originally designed in the classical vein, the house was intended as a place of pleasure and has much decoration aimed at creating a fun atmosphere. In their day, the first Earl Spencer and his wife were social movers and shakers of the highest caliber, and during their lifetime Spencer House was often the setting for extravagant high society parties. The house is not open to public during the months of January to August.
