We've visited many historic palaces and this has to be one of the best. The grounds are superb and the memorial garden for Churchill was stunning. We just missed the daffodils in full bloom but a very fitting tribute to a wonderful man.

It's been a while but we finally returned to the Palace . Enjoyed every minute . Interesting tour of palace , interesting exhibits and beautiful gardens to walk around . Only issue was the serving staff at the cafe by the gardens were unfriendly but didn't spoil our time there .

I visited today with my husband , two children (8 and 13) and my 75 year old mum. Fantastic day from the start. Be prepared for a bit of a walk from the carpark and certainly have your comfy shoes on for the day. Brilliant being able to convert your ticket to an annual pass and we will all certainly... More

Lovely and interesting visit to Bleinhem. Very nice architecture and lots of historic facts, followed by a walk in the gardens - where you can see ducks, grouse, colorfull flowers :) A recommended day out to switch off from the outside world :)

Wonderful day exploring the Palace and the grounds. It was great fun and we loved discovering the history of the Palace and landscape. What an extraordinary history! I love Capability Brown and this is his best achievement! Stunning!! The geese and pheasants are also a plus ;)

Really good visit with lots to see in the house and garden. Found the Churchill exhibition particularly interesting. Warning: Parking can get very difficult and early visits might provide some advantage. We ended up parking in the pleasure garden and catching a miniature train to main gate. Highly recommended visit.

Had a great day out with a friend and went especially to see the costume exhibition which was all we had hoped as we had an excellent guide. But, goodness me, someone needs to organise this place. We queued for ages in the drive where some people seemed to be paying, though we had booked online. Then we queued at... More

Thank you for your review following your recent visit. We're pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit overall, but disappointed to hear your thoughts on certain elements of your experience. It is due to the layout of the Estate that visitors sometimes have to queue on the drive to enter during busy periods: unfortunately we don't have a suitable... More

This beautiful palace and grounds is a great place to visit as a day trip from London. We had high tea in the Greenery which can be reserved ahead of time. It is so full of history and has lovely gardens and grounds to tour too.

there's just too much for one day but if you are passing by, then stop for a while. The grounds are expansive, well laid out, groomed to perfection and a delight in themselves. The House is a remarkable posh country house that happens to be called a palace. There are open rooms to view at leisure but for £5 each,... More
