Booked in July some unfortunate mix up with availability but staff were extremely helpful and got it sorted, many thanks. Winter Wonderland Walk WWW starts after palace closes so numbers are kept to manageable limits with option for a flatter course for those less able. WWW is well laid out with spectacular pieces the Phoenix rising was brilliant. Mulled wine... More

This review is only for the Christmas trail in the palace grounds not the palace as a whole. Ive been there in the past and its a good day out. This is a bit of a rip off cashing in on tourists and young families. Its advertised as good for children but honestly i think its too boring for young... More

Beautifully kept palace. Staff caring and enthusiastic giving wonder talks and knowledgeable answers to questions from the public. We went at the beginning of December so it was tastefully decorated with Christmas decorations. There was a contemporary exhibition displayed around the palace which was not to my liking. The cafe was busy but well run. We would like to return... More

We thought we would be grouped with guide but no! also the promised mulled wine and mince pie included we were expected to p ay! beautiful lighting at the waterfall but I am used to these light shows in my area free! my guests loved it though.

We hired a driver to take us to Blenheim Palace about 2 hours from London. If you have done the major sites, add this one to your list! Outstanding palace that was decorated for Christmas with a special craft fair/event taking place complete with a band playing Christmas carols. A very pleasant surprise, but unfortunately we did not have enough... More

Went over last night for the Christmas walk. Whao, what an experience. Amazing displays involving clever combination of lights, fire and sounds. Great atmosphere with mulled wine, chestnuts and hot chocolate. A must go to get in the festive mood

What a delight to experience Blenheim at Christmas. The lights were superb. We loved all the surprises and would highly recommend. The parking off site was well organised.

Excellent visit, we really had a super day. My husband and I loved everything about our visit, we also walked about a mile and saw most of the gardens. Although probably not the best time of year for the gardens, it was lovely to see lots of wildlife, pheasants, squirrels and geese to name a few. Really enjoyed it.

As a world heritage site and Sir Winston Churchill's birthplace this is somewhere that must be visited. The whole palace and the artefacts on display appear to be in such good condition and the exhibitions bring the place to life. The house tour of the ground floor is a must.

5 of us girls visited arriving late morning. £25 per head for palace and gardens, quite pricey, shame no discount at weekends for students. Very easy to park. The small train (which is an extra 50p per head !) doesn't go or show you anything in particular, a few seconds through a Xmas lit tunnel was sweet. The house itself... More
