We have visited Blenheim many times and have never been dissapointed. Our most recent visit yet again gave us a very enjoyable day out. Starting with a coffee in the Oxfordshire pantry and soft drinks for the kids which was nice, although we have found anything more than a drink can be quite expensive. A lovely relaxing walk down to... More

A great day out. We used a tesco voucher was accepted at the gate no questions asked. We were also advised that the green cabin inside the property would exchange our ticket for a year pass for free which we did no problem. We go there nice and early on a cold but dry bright day. Was lovely to have... More

As it was a sunny dry day we decided to visit Blenheim again. If you pay full price you can exchange your ticket to cover admission for a year for no extra cost. We like to walk in the extensive garden and the secret garden is a favourite. The snowdrops are out now.

Only ground floor rooms are open to public so a little disappointing when paying £25 each entry fee in February as the poor weather means its impossible to get good value out of the gardens either. The Indian Room restaurant looked interesting but we only tried coffee and scones in the Lakeside cafe. Passable scones. Not great coffee though! Shame.... More

We recently visited Blenheim Palace & even though the weather was not good, we enjoyed a wonderful day. We had a tour of the bedrooms & our guide Charles was very welcoming. He told us so much about the history of Blenheim & made the tour so enjoyable. Also our tour of the State Rooms was very interesting. All the... More

We are annual members that live locally so live coming to the Palace. It was the day after our wedding in Woodstock and we had friends and family around so about 13 of us all headed round. Delightful whatever the weather

I had visited Blenheim 32 years ago and was very surprised to see how much it had been commercialized since then. It was, however, very well done and I don't mind the Duke of Marlborough raising funds to continue the restoration work. It is one of the great houses of England, built as a gift from the crown to the... More

In Jan 2017, I visited Blenheim Palace. I think people may not have realized it's open in winter - whatever the reason, I was one of the only people there! I took a walk to the cascades waterfall and thought how nice it was that I could be alone (from the tourist pack) in such a beautiful space. But even... More

The Oxfordshire Pantry is dreadful! Paid £5 for cream tea which included a mug of tea instead of a tea pot . I had to use a plastic cup for the milk. £3.95 for a vegetable soup which included a stale piece of bread! Will not use again

Thank you for your review following your recent visit. Although we are pleased that you rated your visit four stars, we're disappointed to hear your thoughts on one of our cafés. The Oxfordshire Pantry is perfect for a light lunch or snack, serving sandwiches, a soup of the day, cream teas, hot pastries, a selection of hot and cold drinks... More

Spent the day at Blenheim, still much to see on next visit! Great afternoon tea in the Indian room with great service. Downstairs tour a bit disappointing, even though the guide was great! The passion for fashion exhibits added an extra dimension! So much to see in the grounds, the cascades and walks will be even better when the daffodils... More
