Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace is home to the 12th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Surrounded by over 2000 acres of ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped parkland and the great lake, the palace was named a World Heritage Site in 1987.

A true masterpiece of Baroque architecture, Blenheim Palace delivers an awe-inspiring experience for visitors. From the imposing great hall to the beautifully intricate state rooms, the palace balances delicate detail with ambitious architecture on the grandest scale and is home to some of the finest collections of antique furniture, tapestries, porcelain and painted ceilings in Europe.

As well as finding a host of historical monuments across the parkland, from the Column of Victory to the Temple of Diana, where Sir Winston Churchill proposed to his wife, there is the rose garden, secret garden and water terraces to be enjoyed.

Blenheim Palace is not only an iconic part of history, but also a living, changing experience with a wealth of sporting and cultural events, themed exhibitions and tours throughout the year.
