Althorp House: Picture Gallery

Though it's not the largest, the picture gallery is perhaps the grandest room in the Althorp house. This room was originally designed to allow the lady residents of the house to take exercise during inclement weather. (Exercise consisted simply of walking back and forth along the room's 115-foot span.) Some of the Spencer family portraits in the home's collection date back as far as 19 generations, including a portrait of William Spencer, born in the year 1496.
