Blenheim is worth the effort and cost to tour. Try to avoid the weekend crowds if you can. If you get the chance read Bill Bryson's book AT HOME before you go. We didn't have the energy to take any of the specialized tours that...More

Having visited Blenheim years ago, my wife and I decided to return a couple of days ago as we happened to be in Woodstock for our wedding anniversary. We didn't want to visit the house, we just wanted to walk in the grounds and maybe...More

We spent the day at the palace touring the palace, private apartments and grounds and were amazed at the splendour of the place. Whilst not cheap to visit you will get your moneys worth if you are able to spend the whole day on site....More
