With its own special place in British history, Blenheim Palace is the birth place of the late Winston Churchill and home to the 12th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough.
Just eight miles outside Oxford, the World Heritage Site is steeped in more than 300 years of history.
The 18th Century baroque palace and over 2,000 acres of parkland and gardens offer visitors a fascinating insight into how the other half lives.
The grounds, created by one of Britain’s most famous landscape architects Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, boast an unrivalled combination of unspoilt natural beauty, historical monuments and wildlife.
And Blenheim Palace is a great place for walking, and, according to new research, it is home to the greatest collection of ancient oak trees anywhere in Europe!
It’s thought that a centuries-old area of the estate called High Park was originally created by King Henry 1 as part of a royal deer park in the 12th Century.
Around 90 per cent of the woodland is made up of oak trees and it’s thought at least 60 of these date back to the Middle Ages.
