Blenheim Palace Description

Set in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, Blenheim Palace is considered to be one of the finest baroque houses in the country. It was a gift from Queen Anne and a grateful nation to John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, in recognition of his famous victory over the French at the Battle of Blenheim in 1704. It is now the home of the 11th Duke of Marlborough and is lived in and cared for by the family for whom it was built.

Your Reviews of Blenheim Palace

Helena M.Chover (27 January 2008)

The gardens of this palace were laid out by Capability Brown, the most famous of all England landscape gardeners, and a man not to be gainsaid even by royalty. The palace was wonderful and the gardens magnificent.

Luis Arnandis Puig (11 March 2004)

I visited your house in January; it is very historic and well conserved. I also visited the church and monuments. Is my favourite house and gardens wonderful. Return in August, my wife and children are with me.
