Set in 2000 acres of magical parkland and gardens, did you know that the iconic Blenheim Palace is the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill? This World heritage site is absolutely stunning and is the destination of ultimate elegance. Home to the 11th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough, the architecture is incredible and it is a gem of the 18th Century Baroque. Many worldwide visitors have called it 'A true masterpiece'.

This book has so many amazing treasures to visit, some big, some small, some tiny and some tall. Blenheim Palace is one of Britain's biggest attractions and this world famous home was the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, and being prime minister during a war time period, has to be one of the countries hardest jobs. But I'm not here to teach you about the history of Blenheim Palace, as great as it is, I'm here to tell you about the reason we chose it as one of our Top 100 Attractions. Being a huge attraction isn't part of our criteria, but value for money and visitor experience most certainly is. I was hugely impressed with Blenheim Palace and there's so much to do and see here, which means that's two boxes ticked already. I would suggest leaving a whole day free for your visit to Blenheim Palace, and if you purchase their palace, park & gardens ticket, you can convert it to an annual pass for free, so you can visit as many times as you like.
