This was a visit that my partner and I were very much looking forward to as we had been to castle Howard and knew that Blenheim Palace had been designed by the same designer but on a grander scale. The trip around the house was very short. Although the rooms we were shown were what you would expect of a period property, both my partner and I said that we had felt disappointment at how few rooms we were able to see. Considering the house is so vast, we felt that it was poor value for money. The Churchill exhibition was a pleasant experience as were the gardens and lake.
Lastly, there was a rather annoying group called the swarm that were performing in the castle gardens. Totally bewildered as to why they were there. They spoilt the peace and quiet of what should have been a nice walk. Particularly annoying when they blocked my path and to get past them, I had to walk around them.

Dear FF0266,

Thank you for your review.

Palace, park and gardens admission allows guests to enjoy the Churchill and Stables exhibition, the palace state rooms, walled garden and 2000 acres of landscape parkland.

With regards to your comment on the ticket price, we that the price of our admission fee is reflective of the high- quality experience that we provide in and around the palace and hope guests understand this upon their visit.

Kind regards,

Customer Service

A fabulous day out this unique, beautiful and interesting baroque palace and its extensive gardens. Clean and safe environment, with very friendly, informative and helpful staff across all roles. We ate in the Stables cafe and enjoyed our lunch. Something here for everyone. The grounds are huge and there is too much to see in one visit, so when you book online select the Annual Pass option which enables you to return visit at no extra cost, great value. The only criticism I have is that during our visit 10 Aug there was a "contemporary art/drama" group performing around the house and grounds. As we first entered the house state room hall, a couple of these "performers" were writhing around on the floor kissing, which I felt was totally inappropriate. Also, whilst taking photos of the horse statue overlooking the lake, a group of these performers suddenly appeared, started chanting, jumping and cavorting around me, which I did not appreciate. All rather strange and out of keeping with the serene splendour and tranquility of this place and best done in a theatre! Otherwise a very enjoyable full day out, well recommended.

Whilst the palace is as stunning as ever, I do feel like the area you are able to visit inside is restricted. The swarm exhibition of live performers is highly odd and doesn't seem to fit in well with the setting. Definitely an odd choice for such an esteemed venue. They currently have an exhibition on Churchill which was the most interesting part of the whole visit.
