Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire

Blenheim Palace is a large 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 rare English baroque style and is today one of the largest houses in the country. Inside the scale of grandeur continues with an 180ft library and 67ft high hall. The interior is lavishly decorated with guided tours available through the state rooms.

The 'Untold Story' tells Blenheims story through animated figures, video and projection technology while there is also an exhibition dedicated to Winston Churchill.

Outside visitors can enjoy the hedge maze, adventure playground and butterfly house and of course the beautiful grounds designed by Capability Brown.

The palace hosts many events during the year including a Triathlon, Game/Country fair, Jousting and International Horse-Trials.
