Great Day out

Just over the road from the main town of Woodstock. Great day as it was cold and sunny so it looked even more majestic

My wife and I have annual passes and visit frequently. A walk around the beautiful grounds with outstanding views across the estate and surrounding Oxfordshire countryside is the perfect start to a lovely day. Whether you use the various cafes, tea rooms and restaurants or let the children explore the many attractions available, this really is a day out that... More

Lovely grounds but not enough of the house open to visit. The tour was interesting but there was no access to servants areas or kitchens. Chatsworth house was more interesting.

I spent 2 weeks in Woodstock and visited the palace every day! Some days I did nothing but walk and photograph the breathtaking grounds. This is one of the most beautiful and relaxing places I have ever seen! I explored the palace on my own and then decided to spend another day taking a few paid tours. I love history... More

Noted as a UNESCO World Heritage Centre, when visiting Blenheim Palace the first time, one is overwhelmed by its Baroque style, its largesse, its grandeur, its splendor, there are not enough words to describe it. For hundreds of years the home to the Dukes of Marlborough, its combined use as a family home, mausoleum and national monument, draws countless visitors.... More

Beautiful palace and gardens with interesting details on the battle of Blenheim, the 1st Duke of Marlborough, Winston Churchill, etc. Try to visit all the corners of the palace as I nearly missed the rooms with the information on the battle of Blenheim, its importance and military presentation. The rooms devoted to W Churchill are very interesting too. The garden... More

This was our third visit to the home of the Churchill-Spencers, currently occupied by the 12th Duke of Marlborough. The birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill (the Duke is a cousin) this palace is furnished with fine objects from the time of its first occupants to the present, with a bit of space dedicated to Winston. Always popular but because it... More

We were dazzled, amazed, wowed and enchanted by the Christmas lights here. 2016 was the first year of lights and I'm sure it won't be the last. They were spectacular and worth the ticket cost. Plenty of lights, good atmosphere - set us up for Christmas perfectly.

This is an enormous palace, so much to see it will take you all day. It is very well kept up and the tours are worth the money spent. So much history, take your time and spend the day. The palace has a nice bakery and the premade sandwiches are tasty too. Beautiful!!!

We visited in awful rainy weather, but there is plenty to do on the tour of the palace itself and looking forward to returning in good weather to enjoy the spectacular gardens properly.

Thank SGr4
