In our view this the admission price is a rip off - at just under £25.00 each it's a four times the price it should be. You only get to see about about 8-10 state rooms and the Winstone Churchill bit is just so small....More

What a lovely palace and grounds! If you are a Winston Churchill fan, this is a wonderful place to learn more about his childhood, family background and character. The palace is beautifully done not over-the-top opulent like so many of the palaces in other parts...More

What a magical place to visit. The first view as we entered via the Woodstock entrance took our breath away. We had a lovely walk round the grounds then did the very informative (and free) guided tour of the house. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed Blenheim so much. The rooms in the palace were just magnificent. As an afterthought we decided to visit the private apartments- wow we are so glad we did - the difference between the two places Is just so fantastic. The private apartments are...More

The experience was not what we expected and was disappointing. From the 1) pay before you park 2) half a mile trudge to the buildings 3) insipid tasting tea and coffee out of paper cups @ £2.40 each 4) having to queue to go upstairs...More

Thank you for your review. We're disappointed to hear your thoughts on your visit. It is due to the layout of our historic site that we have to ticket upon entry to the Park rather than further inside, as there is no other place that...More

Large showy house in sprawling estate. Very expensive entry price. They justify this by allowing you to convert it to an annual pass but not much use if you don't live locally. Seemed a bit disorganised on our visit - long wait to get in...More

We much preferred walking the grounds which we did for 5 miles! The house itself was not overly interesting to us and we found the chapel in particular quite run down and bland. We would have wanted to see the bedrooms but that was an...More

It certainly is a grand edifice but the visitor experience lacks something when compared with other grand places like Chatsworth House. The gardens are structurally fine but horticulturally boring with little of note. Any visit means a lot of walking despite the little train. The...More

The motto "if you have it, flaunt it", must have applied during the building of this extraordinary palace. Visually it is huge and must have been staggeringly impressive to visitors over the centuries. It is today, also. Interiors able to be visited, without paying extra...More

Hi there! Prices are the same on the gate and online, and everyone enters via the same queues due to the layout of the site. We look forward to welcoming you and hope you have a great visit!
