Visited on an annual pass bought as a present. There is more here to see than meets the eye. The grounds and walks are beautiful. Loved the secret garden and the water garden. Visited the Churchill exhibition which was really interesting. Wanted to do the servants tour but unfortunately it was an outdoors tour and the rain started so never... More

I love this place the walks to the cascades and the house, but now find the entry price to be prohibitive and whilst I realise I can come back in as often as I like in the year it is too far away. I really wanted to give it a lower rating for the fact that now the tea room... More

The whole place, inside and out, is just beautiful. It feels ridiculously expensive but there's so much to do and see that it's worth it. Plus you can upgrade your ticket to a year's pass...for free! We'll definitely be doing this! I recommend spending the whole day there, we arrived at midday and wished we had more time. The weather... More

Blenheim Palace is another extraordinary example of the lengths the English aristocracy went to over the last few hundred years to impress the Court. Massive on any scale, it is the 200 acres of grounds re-designed and re-constructed by Capability Brown in the late 1700's that stood out for me. He was without doubt a genius of landscape design and... More

It will seem very expensive when you arrive but by the time you leave it will seem a bargain! Your ticket can be upgraded free of charge to a years pass to visit anytime. So not only can you take your time & actually read everything ( not easy when there's so much to take in) but you can also... More

Beautiful building and stunning gardens. Steeped in history and loaded with interesting information about its most famous son- Winston Churchill. You can easily loose several hours wandering around the substantial and beautifully maintained grounds. If you are an HHA member you will also save £24 and have contributed to the upkeep.

We have visited Blenheim Palace many times in the past but we have not focused on the amazing walks due to wishing to visit the Palace or attend special events such as Living Crafts for Christmas (our daughter was an exhibitor in 2015). On this visit, and as we become older, we decided to meander around the beautiful Water Terraces.... More

Arrived approx. 11am. Farly lengthy to get into car park, but 3 booths open, so about 15 mins..As we entered grounds we immediately went to the booth to make our tickets into annual passes without charge, an excellent idea.Enjoyed the Churchill rooms. and the general viewing rooms on the ground floor, Could take pphotos without use of flash, no problem....
