Full description
The creation of Blenheim Palace was no easy achievement - the main architect was even refused entry to see his completed work. However, it is open today for all to enjoy its sumptuous interior and its expansive gardens, lake house, and maze. The palace entry ticket worth £28.50 per person is included in your ticket price. These tours are only offered as private group tours max 2-6 persons.  Upon arrival at the palace, your guided tour of the palace will last approximately 90 minutes. You will then have free time to further explore the palace exhibition spaces and gardens in your free time. Visit other parts of the palace and gardens on your own or enjoy a meal at the palace gardens cafe or interior restaurant. The default start time for the tour will be 2:00 PM but other start times may be possible by request, before booking.

Our guide, Peter, was very informative about the Palace and its history and manged the tour in a very professional manner. In particular, the transport and ticketing arrangements were well organised. He has a very sociable manner and readily responded to questions relating to the Palace and to other aspects of Oxford and its history.

Well organized and well narrated. Our guide knew the history of Blenheim very well, and some good anecdotes too. Well done!
