Blenheim Palace and gardens

Blenheim is the greatest baronial palace in England and home to the original Churchill family – the Dukes of Marlborough. The town of Woodstock is right beside it and is worth a look see as well.  If you are having an extended stay at The Emsley we recommend it as a must do if you missed it on the way to Stratford.  The palace is jaw dropping and so are the lake and extensive grounds.  You can easily spend a day just wandering the grounds and picnicking beside the lake.  Our room compendiums have details on getting to Blenheim and many other places by car.
