  • I liked this very much, to our good fortune, were, respectively, and have learned a lot (thank you, Jerry). Beautiful, well maintained an unusually straight polished Park, the Palace of the Dukes of Marlborough very interesting, easy weight exhibits, I, for example, knew that Churchill, and he too belongs to the family, but not the Duke of Marlborough, in adulthood into painting. Me Churchill, as a personality, was always very interesting and I really wanted to look at his paintings, so they are there! And a lot of other things, images associated with it. And on the lawn of the drink great coffee with some things too delicious sweets, such an amazing atmosphere. All advise, a terrific trip.

  • My boyfriend and I had a lovely day out at Blenheim yesterday. The palace is beautiful and we throughly enjoyed our tour as well as a nice lunch at the water terrace. The gift shop has a fantastic variety of products and the customer service was outstanding. A blond girl named Rose offered us excellent customer support. Not only did she help us find perfect gifts to take home to our family, she went to the effort of speaking our language (French) when we were struggling to find the right words in English. We were very impressed and felt welcomed by this helpful and friendly attitude. We would definitely recommend Blenheim to anyone looking for a nice day out.
  • Absolutely loved this place. We were planning to go to this place for a long time having seen some pictures on the Web. Great for outdoor activity lovers. Lush green grass all around, acres and acres of land to explore. Beautiful Lakeside walks. Birth place of Sir Winston Churchill. There is a train for kids and the palace itself is composed of very many state rooms, decorated with tapestry. Please check out their special offers on their website. Restaurant, cafes present on site.
  • Wonderful place for all visitors from small kids to pensioners. From people looking to play big garden chess to walking their dog, relax in the sunshine or perhaps visit the castle itself to explore it's great history. Combined with great weather you can easily spent many hours there. Bonus, buy a day ticket and get 12 months free. I know where I will spend many weekends this year with the kids.
  • The admission fee is pretty expensive, it costs around 20£/adult (10% discount for concessions) but worth spending because you will have a great chance to see excellent arts designed for Royal families. You also can convert your ticket into free-admissions pass card for the next 12 months.
  • Lovely grounds and beautiful house. Great for families and kids. Staff were friendly and helpful. Just wish there was more to see in the house. Not sure I agree that after paying for the house you then have to pay more to see all of it
