Blenheim Palace gardens (one of the Winners of the Historic Houses Association/Christies Garden of the Year Award 2008)are one of the great 18th century parks landscaped by `Capability´ Brown including the largest lake he ever devised. The Secret Garden is one of Blenheim Palace´s most popular attractions for plant lovers as it is a garden for all seasons, combining mature trees with new plantings. This secluded area has winding paths that lead to soothing water features, bridges, fountains, ponds and streams, as well as a myriad of original features. The variety of the grounds at Blenheim Palace means that there is something to suit every taste. The beauty and tranquility of the formal gardens, Water Terraces, Rose Garden and the natural charm of the Arboretum. ´Blenheim Bygones´ Exhibition and the Marlborough Maze are open in the Pleasure Gardens. The Lake and Vanburgh´s Grand Bridge provide the perfect setting for some lovely walks. New Audio Garden Tour available. Take in the wonders of the Formal Gardens at your own pace, with commentary from the Palace's experts.
A full program of events are hosted throughout the year from Easter and Halloween events for the kids to Horse-trials and a Triathlon for all the family.
