The palace grounds are enormous and gorgeous even on a crisp Winter day. I didn't such grandeur. I did the public tour of the house, which was interesting. Might recommend a tour of the private rooms, as I imagine those are less crowded. Special exhibit...More

We went to Blenheim on the same weekend as the Chinese New Year. House was amazing from the outside and inside. Grounds exceptional. Shame the Chinese celebrations were not very good, but that had nothing to do with the Blenheim Palace people.
