Blenheim has always been one of those places we've been planning on visiting. After we visited we wondered why we'd waited so long. As the title suggests, we visited as part of the Blenheim at Christmas experience. Last year we'd visited Westonbert Arboretum and enjoyed that experience. Blenheim easily topped that. I'd try and put into words how magical the... More

Booked online for £16 per adult as an advanced Christmas present to one another. We took the park and ride which was stress free- literally park your car and there are buses already waiting. It's a quick two minute journey and even drops you closer to the entrance that the car park starts. The light show was beautiful, trees were... More

Disappointed with the light trail. Thought there would be lots of different lights along the route with possibly Christmas music playing. In reality there was mainly uplighters on some trees and a few light projectors. There was a strange fire display which you could walk round in a circle, it felt like something out of The Wicker Man and I... More

Took our 1 year old to see the Christmas at Blenheim lights this evening. The lights were very good and she seemed to like it. Unfortunately though there were several things that really created problems for us with a small child. 1) we had paid to park on site. This turned out to be a car park about a mile... More

We found Blenheim House Christmas Lights Trail by chance on the internet and with disaster Christmas Experiences/stories hot in the press recently we still talked ourselves into booking, fingers crossed, and everything else. We convinced ourselves its Blenheim House after all; they couldn’t risk their name, could they? NO they don’t. I am not sure we knew exactly what to... More

Enjoyable walk with wonderful grounds and buildings but sadly ruined by the exhibition running while we were there.

Great, fantastic job done by all concerned. Luckily it was dry and cold for us on Thursday. If it rains...you will need good footwear. Wonderful lit displays. Lots of food available and drink and toasted marshmallows. Lovely gifts in the shop. Carousels available for the tiny tots. All in all well worth the money.

Making it exceptionally good value for money The house is picturesque and stately in every manner. The gardens are spectacular and worth spending several hours if you are fit enough. The Churchill exhibition is... More

The ticket are from £16 for adults and from £10 per child, family tickets are available. You can also have on site parking for £8 or park and ride for £5. I would suggest the... More
