Blenheim Palace Guided Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Upon arrival at Blenheim palace, your guide will take you on a guided tour from approximately 2pm to 3.30pm. You will then have free time to visit other parts of the palace and gardens on your own or to enjoy a meal at the palace gardens cafe or interior restaurant.

    After the tour of Blenheim palace, we recommend that you also visit Woodstock village which is just 15 minutes walk from the palace. Woodstock has Cotswolds style traditional stone buildings and is very pretty with some good pubs and a museum which closes at 4pm or 5pm. For your information, there is a regular bus service back to Oxford which leaves outside the palace gates or from Woodstock village centre, until late in the evening.

    Most of our tours are effectively private group bookings and they are limited to max 6 persons only. Thus, average numbers on tours are only 2 persons. Guided tour duration is 90 minutes+.

    • Dec 25th 2018 and Jan 7th plus Jan 8th 2019.
    • Blenheim palace is located just next to Woodstock village, so we recommend you visit both locations in your free time after the guided tour.
    • Please arrive 5 minutes early for your tour at our meeting point. If you arrive more than 30 minutes later than the scheduled tour, then you might forfeit and lose your booking, so please plan your time adequately to arrive at the palace and to park in time.
    • Our designated actual meeting point at the palace is at the welcome info desk inside the cafe and shop at the palace entrance. There are WC toilets nearby.
    • Your guide will be wearing a red badge and lanyard.
    • If you are driving, then please allow extra 30-60 minutes over whatever time you think it will take you to get here-especially if you will be arriving at the palace via Oxford as Oxford is NOT car friendly and it is congested roads. If you happen to be going to the palace from Oxford, then we can alternatively plan to collect you in Oxford city centre, an hour before the tour start time at the palace.
    • There is a regular public bus service to the palace gates from Oxford direction or from Witney direction. It leaves approximately every 20 minutes and lasts average 45 minutes to get to the palace gates. You then need to plan 15 minutes walk from the gates bus stop to the welcome desk meeting point at the palace shop and café entrance area to meet us.
