Description

Sir Winston Churchill took his first breath here at Blenheim Palace in 1874, which is reason enough to add it to your 'sites from English history' checklist. Explore this beautiful Baroque UNESCO World Heritage Site, wander the gilded state rooms and marvel at portraits, furniture, sculpture and tapestries. You can even picnic in the gardens!

If you've ever dreamed of a home in the country, chances are you've imagined something like this!

Home to the 12th Duke of Marlborough and his family, the extravagant and storied Blenheim Palace is a stand-out attraction in Oxfordshire - and the English country manor of your dreams.

Picture yourself at important occasions in the State Rooms. Ponder the price of so-called priceless art collections and count the historical books that line the walls of the Long Library.

Outside, there are 2,000 acres of landscaped parkland and Formal Gardens to run around or laze about in. Check out the majestic Water Terraces, the Duke's Private Italian Garden and a peaceful Secret Garden.

Why not pack some sandwiches and settle in for a picnic? It all feels so civilized!
