Blenheim Palace is a World Heritage Site nestled in the rolling hills of Oxfordshire. Amongst many fabulous things, it has played host to Hollywood royalty during the production of films like Mission Impossible and Harry Potter! Who says history has to be boring?
This was the birthplace of Winston Churchill, home to the 12th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough AND its grounds were designed by the renowned landscape architect, ‘Capability’ Brown. The building dates back 300 years and is covered in beautiful baroque detail.
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 packed with slides, swings and a sand pit. You can also explore the formal gardens and take in stunning views of the Grand Cascades and lake. A sure winner, especially for curious mini-minds, is the butterfly house. It’s filled with gorgeous specimens from all over the world!
