Excellent value for money if you convert tesco voucher and then convert you ticket to an annual pass at no extra charge. Great audio tour of the house which was enjoyed my all ages from 10 to 70. The little train from Palace to pleasure...More

The architecture is breathtaking and the art within is amazing. Too much to see in one day, but we managed both the upstairs and downstairs tours, along with the Turner exhibition. The grounds are stunning and the staff are so well educated on the history...More

We have been to the Palace on a few occasions, and have enjoyed the experience. We wanted to see the display of Winston Churchill’s painting, having previously visited his home at Chartwell in Kent. What a disappointment ONLY 12 paintings displayed in one small corner...More

Great value for money especially if you can make the most of the 12 month pass. Kids love the butterfly house and cafe which does a lovely 🍕 pizza.

The most interesting part of Blenheim Palace is how much of a footnote Winston Churchill was in its long history. We bypassed the audio tour, choosing to engage with the many guides dotted around the property. They were only too happy to give us interesting...More

We exchanged our tickets for annual passes and visited Blenheim over two days. This allowed us to fully explore the grounds and palace at our leisure. The audio headsets are really helpful when touring the palace as are the staff. Lots to see and learn...More

It’s a nice building and clearly parts are under renovation which is necessary but unfortunate. The tour of the palace was good but not very well thought out when it came to the Churchill rooms which were cramped and claustrophobic. The staff could have done...More
