Blenheim Palace is one of England's many historic and treasured locations. It is, in fact, still a palace that is accompanied by the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough.
This is the entrance gate to the Palace.
This palace is also the birthplace of the famous Winston Churchill who was born on November 30, 1847. He spent most of his life here at the palace and felt a great love for this place up till the day he passed.
This is our HUE 2011 group in front of the Palace.
The Palace was a gift from Queen Anne to John Churchill, the 1st Duke of Marlborough right after his victory at the Battle of Blenheim in 1704. It is quite the site to see I might add. It is one of the most beautiful homes I have ever seen. Given, it is a Palace.
A great view of where you can have lunch at the Palace.
Blenheim Palace has one of the most unique interior designs I have ever seen. It is extremely well kept and not to mention well reserved over the hundreds of years. But don't let the inside be the Palace be the only thing to draw you in. Take time to enjoy the scenery outside. Acres and acres of greenery and well groomed gardens. It is a sight to see for sure.
This is myself, Ashley and Gracie in the Gardens.
I would definitely recommend Blenheim Palace to anyone who wants a good slice of history and wants to stay and enjoy your morning or afternoon. There is tons to do and the world famous city of Oxford is only 20 minutes down the road. But check it out for yourself! You won't be disappointed!
