“Close to our Airbnb it is a breathtaking place, you are able to take a guide around the palace or wander around the amazing gardens. the grounds are huge and many take picnics to enjoy on the lush grass. It may take two visits to see everything but your tickets can be swapped for yearly pass so that isnt a problem. In Woodstock where the Palace is situated there are nice places to relax enjoy a meal before returning to the grounds of Blenhiem.”
