Newest Review: ... is pretty pricey I think! Especially as Hampton Court Palace gardens are free! In the Gardens there are 2,000 acres to explore, beautiful lakes/ponds/fountains/gift shop and of course the butterfly house with hundreds of different species of butterflys to look at and some will land on you.

I went to Blenheim palace just last week for a birthday trip! We didn't go into the house, instead just went round the gardens and to the butterfly house- which cost £11 for adults or £8 (students/concessions). If you want to visit the house +gardens it's £19/adult which is pretty pricey I think! Especially as Hampton Court Palace gardens are free!

Having Historic House passes and being close by on holiday a visit to Blenheim was a must. It is worth noting, you absolutely need a whole dy at Blenheim to make the most of it, there is so much to see and do. If you don't have passes to get in then entry is quite pricey £17.50 per adult! Parking is onsite and included within you ticket price. There is plenty so no battle for spaces. The official guide book cost £5 and was well worth the money. Some lovely photos and a lot of information included. These can be obtained at many sites, there are a few kiosks selling them and can be purchased and one of the many gift shops. When we arrived ...

Blenheim Palace, Formal Gardens and Park ~~~~~A very brief snippet into its history~~~~~ In the early eighteenth century, Europe was engaged in bitter fighting as the War of Spanish Succession (1701-1714) raged. In 1704, the French King, Louis XIV, sought to knock the Holy Roman Empire out of this conflict by capturing its capital, Vienna. The Grand Alliance (England, Habsburg Empire, Dutch Republic, Portugal, Spain, & the Duchy of Savoy) was determined to retain the Empire and thus, the 1st Duke of Marlborough, John Churchill (1650-1722) made plans to intercept Louis before his forces and allies could reach Vienna.
