Fantastic time had by all. Good value for money. Enjoyed every minute. Took relatives from Norway, they thoroughly enjoyed the English experience stating this is a wonderful start to Christmas.

We did the Christmas lights on Friday night and were very impressed by the fire display and the cascades. Lovely to have mulled cider to start, and exceptional marshmallows to toast on fire pits halfway round (raspberry and champagne and passion fruit and ginger were both delicious). On Saturday we did the palace and found the Churchill exhibition fascinating

We have visited Blenheim palace many times but this time thought the Christmas decorations were very disappointing. We didn't like the modern art displays, it completely spoiled the beautifull rooms and furnishings for us. Stick to traditional displays in future.

Visited for the winder Christmas lights show. It's very good with multiple different light shows to see and one very spectacular one which will take your breath away I think (so I'm not going to spoil the surprise here). Take your camera and video equipment - it;s very memorable. The walk takes about an hour and has a few places... More

Blenheim is a beautiful and ornate stately home. Everything about its gorgeous interior dances upon the eye. Everything that is except the eyesore of the current art exhibition. Distracting yes, out of context yes, as relevant as a space hopper in a jam factory. I look forward to returning once it has gone.

The art installations current at Blenheim meant many rooms were obstructed so viewing what we visited to see was either hard or impossible. Entry fee is not cheap either so more annoyed our visit was spoilt by the most ridiculous installations. We're in support of trying new things and mixing old with new however one should not have detrimental impact... More

Blenheim has always been one of those places we've been planning on visiting. After we visited we wondered why we'd waited so long. As the title suggests, we visited as part of the Blenheim at Christmas experience. Last year we'd visited Westonbert Arboretum and enjoyed that experience. Blenheim easily topped that. I'd try and put into words how magical the... More

Booked online for £16 per adult as an advanced Christmas present to one another. We took the park and ride which was stress free- literally park your car and there are buses already waiting. It's a quick two minute journey and even drops you closer to the entrance that the car park starts. The light show was beautiful, trees were... More

Disappointed with the light trail. Thought there would be lots of different lights along the route with possibly Christmas music playing. In reality there was mainly uplighters on some trees and a few light projectors. There was a strange fire display which you could walk round in a circle, it felt like something out of The Wicker Man and I... More
