This is a must visit for those who are fans of Winston Churchill, and even see worthy if you are not. The Christmas lights, indoors and outside, are dramatic.

Our first visit to Blenheim Palace. Absolutely fantastic. We spent 4 hours. Audio tour great. History superb. We converted to annual pass because the grounds are also lovely for walks and scenery and wildlife. There are also some special events later in the year.

Friends (we had traveled from Cape Town) had told us months ago (August 2018) that the Blenheim Palace Christmas lights experience was a must. And indeed it lived up to all expectations...a winter wonderland!

We visited on a chilly January day. We were a little concerned about the £27 per head entry fee - we shouldn’t have been! The scale of the Palace and gardens is incredible and the running costs and renovation costs match this. It was fascinating...More

If you’re in the Oxford region, I would highly recommend visiting the Palace. Parking is free if you arrive before midday. The grounds alone were stunning, but the home of Duke and Duchess of Marlborough match the setting. There’s also a steam train (Winston of...More

No. Entrance is paid for if you have Cinderella Experience tickets. Look at the web site carefully, we also qualified for free on-site parking that is offered at some times.
