Arguably the most impressive of England’s stately homes, Blenheim Palace is a grand country house in Oxfordshire, home to the current Duke of Marlborough and accidental birthplace of 20th century statesman Sir Winston Churchill.
This baroque masterpiece was built in the early 1700s as residence to the 1st Duke of Marlborough, whose descendants still live here. The grandeur of the interior includes a 60-metre-long library and a soaring entrance hall, all designed to impress. The interior is lavishly decorated with Old Master paintings, tapestries, priceless furniture, clocks, books and exquisite ceramics.
The gardens are some of the most important in England – beautiful grounds designed by ‘Capability’ Brown that stretch into the distance. Let your private guide tell you stories of fearless Winston, battling Dukes, redoubtable Duchesses and ‘Dollar Princesses’ and epic struggles to tame the landscape.
Visitors can also be taken to Winston Churchill’s grave and Bladon.
