Dating back 300 years and packed full of games and play, Blenheim Palace is a World Heritage gem nestled in the rolling hills of Oxfordshire.
Step down the grand drive into 2,000 acres of parkland. From here there’s plenty to keep little legs busy with buggy tours, a giant hedge maze, a miniature train ride to the Pleasure Gardens and a play area full of slides, swings and a sand pit. Just don’t miss the butterfly house. It’s filled with gorgeous specimens from all over the world.
This was the birthplace of Winston Churchill, home to the 12th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough AND played host to Hollywood royalty during the production of films like Mission Impossible and Harry Potter. Now it’s yours to explore for a day full of fun!
