Visited the palace today. Found the experience good overall but very expensive for entry and gift shop produce. Guided tour was fantastic and far better than the audio guide. Building is not set up for easy navigation and the grounds not accessible for the disabled.

If you want to feel small in this world, Blenheim Palace is the place to go. The history and opulence is beyond words for what was meant to be a home for a British war hero. Not only is the built structure over the top...More
