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

We then walked the short distance onto the Royal Automobile Club, where were greeted by a gorgeous Lotus Elan from 1962.

Lunch was then served in the elegant Segrave room, which houses an amazing collection of racing memorabilia. The room was named after Sir Henry O'Neil de Hane Segrave. 

Sir Henry O'Neil de Hane Segrave (22 September 1896 – 13 June 1930) was famous for setting three land speed records and the Water Speed record, he was the first person to hold both record simultaneously. 

Thank you to everyone for coming and making this such a special day.

“There are semi-naked women playing beach volleyball in the middle of the Horse Guards Parade immortalised by Canaletto. They are glistening like wet otters and the water is splashing off the brims of the spectators’ sou’westers.”
