Blenheim Palace

Gardens galore and a pretty painting and tapestry or two at this sprawling, palace estate

UNESCO World Heritage site and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, the vast, manicured grounds of Blenheim Palace have been consistent drawn visitors since its opening to the public in the 1950s. Built to celebrate victory over the French in the War of Spanish Succession, today the palace is a open warren of ornate, stately rooms lined with stunning portraiture, tapestries and furniture. Exhibitions held by the Blenheim Art Foundation provide artsy inspiration, and the palace’s grounds prove an enduring attraction – some 2000 acres of sprawling leafy spaces that include an Italian Garden, Water Terraces and Secret Garden, to name but a few.
