Blenheim Palace, one of England’s largest houses was built at the start of the 18th Century and is a World Heritage Site. The Palace is home to the 11th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and was the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Blenheim Palace is a masterpiece of 18th Century Baroque architecture and visitors are inspired by the imposing Great Hall, the beautifully intricate State rooms, the stunning portraits, tapestries and furniture collections. It is set in over 2000 acres of beautifully landscaped parkland and formal gardens.
Children are well catered for too with miniature train rides to the Pleasure Gardens, where they can enjoy the Marlborough Maze (the world’s second largest symbolic hedge maze) as well as the Tropical Butterfly House and adventure play area. It’s certainly worth spending the whole day at Blenheim Palace with all the family…and then going back for more!
