It is a place steeped in tradition while being home to the hustle and bustle of some of London’s busiest sights and attractions.

The Restored Garden at Spencer House is open on specific days throughout the Spring and Summer months so local residents can enjoy a relaxing stroll and budding gardeners can see the newly planted flowers and shrubs.
