At Blenheim Palace, this summer

Upstairs Tour – Discover the world of the aristocracy at #BlenheimPalace in the new Upstairs Tour. Explore the guest Rooms, none of which have been open to the public before. Previous guests have included Queen Mary, King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, Cecil Beaton, and Yves Saint Lauren. 

… and Downstairs – Servants were essential to the aristocratic way of life. It would have been completely impossible for the family to take care of themselves, to manage the house, look after the children, and let alone host fancy dinner parties without the help of servants. Bring your grandchildren to learn all about life below stairs at Blenheim Palace.

#Jousting Tournament – Knights will do battle in a daring display of bravery and skill. Watch a falconry display and see the birds of prey in action. Families can also have a go at archery. August 19-21.

Capability' Brown Viewpoints Trail – Discover views and vistas created by Brown and his workmen between 1763 and 1774.

Train rides – The Blenheim Palace Train takes visitors to the Pleasure Gardens, designed for families with an adventure playground, a maze, butterfly house, and lavender garden. The train runs every 30 minutes daily between the Palace and Pleasure Gardens.
