We stopped by on the way to Oxford and a good choice. The palace and grounds are beautiful. All rooms are decorated and lived in half the year when closed to public. The library is amazing. The garden and gift shop are very nice.

The place great for a day out. Plenty to keep you occupied. The tour of the house is split into 2. The right side is more collections and memorabilia of the house and the Dukes. The left is a tour that has videos and animatronics to give you a good history of the place. If you want to keep it... More

Stunning house, kind and helpful staff, wondeful walks in the gardens and estate, fabulous miniature train, interesting maze and a lovely stately home.

Visited on a Saturday with friends. Did not expect to pay extra, on top of the £24.95 each we paid for the palace and grounds, to see some private apartments or the servants quarters. They should be included in the admission fee. So all we saw in the Palace were some state rooms and a Churchill exhibition - very disappointing.... More

Thank you for your review. We're pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience in one of our cafes but disappointed to hear your thoughts on the Palace experience. The tours that incur a small additional fee are those of the Duke of Marlborough's Private Apartments, where the Marlborough family still live. These tours run seasonally and take visitors into...

This place is amazing - historically significant, beautiful gardens and surrounds and well run. My wife and I visited Blenheim on a sunny Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed strolling around the grounds, lake and gardens. The Palace itself is very grand and full of the history of Winston Churchill. A must visit if in the area.

On a fairly wet day this was the best choice we could have made. The house is taken in two trips, we went first to the right at the top of the steps and toured at a walking pace to different state rooms and many lovely displays. To have a rest from walking we then went onto the buggy trip... More

The opulence of Blenheim Palace has to be seen to be believed. The beautiful gardens are stunning and they are a sight everyone should see in at least once in their lives! Even on a rainy day, this was an excellent day out, and although it was a bit pricey, it was worth it.

We (five couples) planned to go on a tour to the Cotswolds some months ago and Blenheim Palace featured early on our itinerary. Blenheim Palace's features (architecture and landscape) lived up to and exceeded the expectation we had of it; It is stunningly beautiful, as well as historically fascinating. It is very well organised for visitors: Efficient entrance gate, good... More

Unlike a majority of attractions such as Castles, stately homes, etc., I found Blenheim to be peaceful without large crowds and being herded.. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and easily approachable.. Food expensive.. Car park large and easy walk to entrance.. Information was not overwhelming and easy to absorb.. A nice day out and a Saturday which was surprisingly not... More
