Stunning place, very hot day, just beautiful. Lots to see and do even with out the property being open just yet. We loved the little train ride. Easy parking. Could have walked around here all day, very relaxing, enchanting. Not too busy.... Yet.

20min bus ride from Oxford city centre. Notable films that were shot at Blenheim include Harry Potter, Cinderella and spectre James Bond. The lavish clocks, furnishings, portraits were well suited to the elaborate rooms. The gardens were beautiful and well maintained.

Dear beccawatson06, Thank you for taking the time to review Blenheim Palace and to share your experience with us. We are truly pleased that you enjoyed your time exploring our beautiful grounds and found our Palace to be dressed in ways that best suit each room. All of the Palace State Rooms are filled with items that belong to the Family across many generations. In addition to these locations we have now created two brand new exhibition spaces including the new Churchill Exhibition and the new Stables Exhibition. We hope to you welcome you back in the not too distant future to explore even more of what Blenheim has to offer.

We had a wonderful visit to Blenheim Palace Gardens. It was a beautiful sunny day and the gradens were delightful. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and the toilet facilities very clean with warm water for handwashing. I loved the over-friendly ducks who appeared from nowhere when it was picnic time, and the Secret Garden with it's resident pheasant who posed for many photos! We are looking forward to returning when the restaurant has re-opened so that we can meet up with our family for lunch/afternoon tea.

Our first day out as a family for months following lockdown. If you haven’t been to Blenheim then you are missing out. We had a lovely walk around the grounds in the sunshine and had a great ice cream from the kiosk. Can’t wait to go back when everything is fully open again
