Home to the 12th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough, Blenheim Palace is a World Heritage Site, famed as the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill and surrounded by over 2,000 acres of ‘Capability’ Brown parkland.

Blenheim Palace will honour our ‘Greatest Briton’ with a new Churchill Exhibition, a ‘Follow in Churchill’s Footsteps Trail’ and, from mid-June, a new Churchill Memorial Garden. There will also be a wealth of events taking place throughout the year, from the new Blenheim Palace Food Festival and the British Supercar show at Salon Privé, to the popular annual Blenheim Palace Flower Show – this year opened by TV cook Mary Berry – and the Blenheim Palace Spring Jousting tournament.
