Good Morning World!
Blenheim Palace is a historical goldmine located in Woodstock, Oxfordshire. It was the home and birthplace of our former Prime Minister Winston Churchill and scores high in the must see places when visiting this gorgeous county.
I am very lucky in saying that this historical gem is right on my doorstep and I have spent many the afternoon lounging in their palace gardens. Here is all you need to know for a trip to Blenheim Palace.
Where is it?

Travel / Parking
Blenheim Palace offers free parking for all visitors to its Park, Palace and Gardens, so there is no need to bring loose change with you.
To get to Blenheim Palace I would recommend going by car as there aren’t any direct trains coming into Woodstock, however if you are travelling a vast distance you can get the train to Oxford or Bicester and make you way out via bus accordingly.
Various Attractions | What to do?
There are many great things to do when visiting Blenheim. You can take part in multiple tours of the Palace, seeing the suites, a Churchill Exhibition and a formal gardens walking tour and many more. The attractions are very informative and provide accurate historical data and is therefore an excellent educational trip for families and schools.
Along with the Palace tours they also have various park activities for children including a butterfly house, outdoor play area with interactive and learning games, and a huge maze (while I’ll admit got lost in a couple of times).
In addition to this there are various restaurants, cafes and shops for you all to enjoy, including afternoon tea in the palace gardens overlooking various water fountains and the palace grounds.
There are different prices depending on what attractions you want to see at Blenheim, and I don’t think its compulsory to see them all on your first visit however, if you have come far to see it I would suggest going for the more expensive option. The two options to take into consideration are the Palace, Park and Garden ticket, which allows you into everything, and a Park and Garden ticket, which wont allow you into the Palace or into the gates to look at it.

I really hope you enjoyed this post and this inspired you to do a little more exploring. Enjoy your summer days out.
