Blenheim Palace is Britain’s Greatest Palace and offers visitors a precious time, every time.
The Palace was built between 1705 and 1733 for John Churchill, the 1st Duke of Marlborough to celebrate his victory over the French in the Battle of Blenheim on 13th August 1704.
The list of things to see and do at Blenheim Palace is endless!
2,000 acres of park and gardens to explore, including Europe’s greatest collection of ancient Oak trees, buggy tours of the lake, Palace tours, the butterfly house, take a ride on the miniature train, explore locations of TV and film, which include SPECTRE and Cinderella, book a boat and go fishing, have a quick bite to eat while overlooking the formal gardens in the Water Terrace café, explore the Marlborough Hedge Maze, visit the Grand Bridge, the Column of Victory and the Grand Cascades. And don’t forget the Gift Shop and The Gardens Shop (for all you keen gardeners!).
Along with Castle Howard in North Yorkshire, this is Vanbrugh’s masterpiece, created for John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough, after the battle of Blenheim in 1704.
Just eight miles north-west of Oxford, this magnificent Baroque World Heritage Site in undulating Capability Brown parkland is still home to the Marlborough dukes, and the Churchill family who count Sir Winston (who was born here and whose grave is at the nearby village of Bladon) and Lady Diana Spencer-Churchill among its members. You’ll need a day to see the house and gardens properly, and explore the old town of Woodstock.
