This is a great place to get an annual pass. We go here on Sundays and walk our dog. Great walk and good views.
Also get a cracking cup of coffee in the shop or van outside.

We use the grounds to walk the dog we park on the housing Estate off Manor Road, Woodstock A44 and use the public footpath beyond the Black Prince going out of Woodstock on the opposite side of the road, £25 is a expensive dog walk otherwise, dogs have to be kept on the lead because of sheep.

A good visit that combines beautiful scenery, walks and history.

Managed to walk to the victory column before the rain set in which is a must as you get some beautiful views.

The house has a good mix of rooms and displays to look at. Due to the rain we did not visit the pleasure garden. Thanks must also go to the 3 men who pushed my car out a boggy field.

We visited today with our young children and friends. Although it a nice experience with lovely grounds etc, we paid £26 per adult ticket for a day of ‘Easter entertainment’ within the garden grounds and were disappointed to discover the additional cost of rides & activities, i.e £3 for archery, fairground rides £2.50 each. We bought a hotdog for £5, which consisted of a cheap frankfurter in a bun. We were really expecting a bit more & perhaps felt the advertising a little misleading.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review following your recent visit.

We're disaapointed to hear of your experience this Easter Weekend. We hope that your experience this Easter has not affected your view of Blenheim Palace and have converted your day ticket to an Annual Pass, allowing you to come back as many times as you like over the next year to discover all we have to offer.

We spent a very enjoyable day at Blenheim. Easy to find and ample parking. No need to get there too early as the gardens aren’t open till 10am and the house 10:30am. Would recommend going to see the formal gardens and taking the time to walk through the gardens to the cascade and back around the lake, the scenery is just amazing, remember to take your camera.

The house is beautiful, with very efficient, regular and informative guides giving an informative tour. Allow a couple of hours inside the house to enjoy it properly.

Also recommend going to see the butterflies as they were beautiful.

All in all a great trip, that I would
