Blenheim Palace is a huge and splendid country house in Oxfordshire, home to the 11th Duke of Marlborough and birthplace of Winston Churchill. It was built between 1705 and 1722 in the English baroque style and is today one of the largest houses in the country. It has a 180ft library and 67ft high hall. The interior is luxuriously and grandly decorated with guided tours available through the state rooms.
Outside visitors can enjoy the hedge maze, secret garden, and butterfly house and of course, the beautiful grounds designed by Capability Brown in 1764. Allow a full day for the palace and gardens.
The palace hosts many events during the year including a Triathlon, Game/Country fair, Jousting and International Horse-Trials.
