Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace Garden is one of the grandest gardens in Britain.

Explore the Formal Gardens surrounding the Palace. These include the spectacular Water Terraces – designed by Achille Duchene in 1920s for the 9th Duke of Marlborough – the Italian Garden and the Secret Garden.

From the South Lawn, walk towards the Boathouse by the lake and discover the Churchill Memorial Garden, the stunning Rose Garden and the Temple of Diana.

There are several walks around the Park, all clearly marked.

Don’t miss the Grand Cascade by ‘Capability’ Brown – cross the River Glyme by New or Bladon Bridge and it’s on your right.

Near the Grand Bridge is Rosamund’s Well. This is the site of the bower created by Henry II in the 12th century for his mistress Rosamund de Clifford.

And for Harry Potter fans, don’t miss the Cedar of Lebanon in the Park which starred in the 2007 film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

The estate is still home to the Dukes of Marlborough.

Blenheim is a World Heritage Site.

Wheelchair users must contact Blenheim before visiting as there is a step-free entrance to the garden.

Historic Houses members can visit the gardens once a year for free.
