  • Lovely family home. Converted tickets into annual passes. Came Back for the second day visit to look round the beautiful gardens. Saw the house on the first day. We will be back to explore further. Cafe was good. Sandwiches were tasty and fresh. Today was a car fest of luxury cars. Separate tickets. The drive to the house was lined with prestige motors. Never seen so many prestige motors in one place in my life. Absolutely amazing.
  • Great visit. House guide was informative. Pity upstairs and downstairs were not on tour. Gardens were well kept and we had a lovely walk to the cascades.
  • Plenty of parking, so don't worry about that. The long library is a bookworms dream at over 183 feet making it the second longest room in Great Britain and the Churchill exhibition is highly interesting. Definitely would visit again. Mind you, haven't seen the gardens yet.
  • This is one of my favorite places on earth. The historic significance and grandeur blows my mind. We've traveled to walk through twice and I'll be doing it again. It really takes you back to another time with all that outstanding scenery. Thumbs up!
  • Every part of my day at Blenheim Palace was brilliant yesterday. The Formal Gardens, the stunning Lakes and landscaping, and the natural areas, are all so well kept. The house itself is very beautiful in a grand, but not pompous way. The commentary headset information didn't ramble on and I loved that some narration was done by the staff. The staff were smiley and helpful. The cafe was well run and the food delicious. I have the one year pass so will definitely go back.
