We had a wonderful day out at Blenheim Palace, despite the Palace being closed due to filming there was so much more todo. The surroundings are spectacular, beautiful lakes and walks. The gift shops, food venues, facilities etc are all of a very high standard.

Do the organised tour first, then move onto the Winston Churchill rooms, and then go around the gardens, then the gift shop, you will find that this will take around 3 to 4 hours.
