Blenheim Palace Home of the Dukes of Marlborough

Blenheim Palace is a World Heritage Site and home to the 13th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough.

Queen Anne and a grateful nation gifted Blenheim Palace to the 1st Duke of Marlborough for his great victory at the Battle of Blenheim in 1704. A true masterpiece of Baroque architecture, Blenheim Palace delivers an awe-inspiring experience for visitors and is surrounded with over 2000 acres of ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped Parkland and Formal Gardens.

Sir Winston Churchill was born at Blenheim Palace in 1874. Grandson of the 7th Duke, he was also a close friend of the 9th Duke and Duchess. Winston spent a considerable amount of time at the Palace throughout his life and proposed to his wife Clementine in the Temple of Diana.

Tour this historic site and enjoy a Winston Churchill Premier Afternoon Tea, allowing you to sample our ‘Greatest Briton’s’ favourite champagne and tea, whilst sampling a delicate range of mini pastries and cakes overlooking the beautiful Water Terraces.
