Blenheim Palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with over 300 years of history. Situated in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside, it is one of England's largest houses and is a stunning example of architecture.

Arguably, it is most famous as the birthplace and home of Sir Winston Churchill, England's Prime Minister between 1940-45 and 1951-55. There are exhibitions here dedicated to one of our greatest leaders and the work he did during the war.

Blenheim Palace comes alive at this time of year, with an illuminated light trail bringing together a multitude of twinkling lights, seasonal sounds and festive fun; beautiful Christmas decorations; and a Christmas market in The Great Court, where you can stock up on festive treats.
