If you get the chance go and see the wonderful display of colour and light at Blenheim Palace on the illuminated trail through the festive gardens. We went on a Wednesday evening and had a really good time. Be warned it gets very crowded at the weekends so mid week is best. plenty of hot chocolate and marshmallows along with... More

We had a lovely day arrived early and enjoyed the displays in the house. Some interesting quirky art installations, then enjoyed tea and cake in the tea room which was lovely and when it went dark we went on the Christmas Lights walk, it was absolutely exquisite, amazing lights and sounds the whole garden was lit up beautifully telling a...

Fabulous walk round the gardens. Parking on site is very well organised and there is a short walk to the palace, blue badge parking was available right outside the entrance. The courtyard is delightful with a carousel and Xmas food and mulled wine. The shop was open for a coffee or a wander round the gift shop but not essential.... More

A wonderful palace rich in history. The tours are informative and we enjoyed learning about the history of the palace and of Winston Churchill's childhood. The gardens are well maintained and one can stroll through the ancient woodland for hours. The ticket costs £25 per person with a concessionary discount of £5. They also offer an unlimited number of revisits... More

Blenheim Palace is a great place to visit. We have annual passes and live fairly locally so go often, particularly in the summer. There is lots to do - beautiful gardens (the rose garden is particularly beautiful at the end of the summer), beautiful walks, a wonderful maze and playground for children (as well as the train), often in the...

There were 52 of us and we were all catered for well with good vegetarian options .The afternoon was free to please ourselves but we were slightly... More

Booked in July some unfortunate mix up with availability but staff were extremely helpful and got it sorted, many thanks. Winter Wonderland Walk WWW starts after palace closes so numbers are kept to manageable limits with option for a flatter course for those less able. WWW is well laid out with spectacular pieces the Phoenix rising was brilliant. Mulled wine... More

This review is only for the Christmas trail in the palace grounds not the palace as a whole. Ive been there in the past and its a good day out. This is a bit of a rip off cashing in on tourists and young families. Its advertised as good for children but honestly i think its too boring for young... More

Beautifully kept palace. Staff caring and enthusiastic giving wonder talks and knowledgeable answers to questions from the public. We went at the beginning of December so it was tastefully decorated with Christmas decorations. There was a contemporary exhibition displayed around the palace which was not to my liking. The cafe was busy but well run. We would like to return... More

booked well in advance and provided with an 7 40 pm slot time. We thought we would be grouped with guide but no! also the promised mulled wine and mince pie included we were expected to p ay! beautiful lighting at the waterfall but I am used to these light shows in my area free! my guests loved it though.

Thank sidonie
