Blenheim Palace
World Heritage Site

World Heritage Site

We see heritage as our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass onto future generations. Our cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration.

The heritage status of the Palace and Park sits alongside other unique and diverse World Heritage Sites such as the wilds of East Africa’s Serengeti, the Pyramids of Egypt, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and the Baroque cathedrals of Latin America.

With this status, and the aims of being a World Heritage Site comes a level of responsibility. We coordinate the World Heritage Committee which meets once a year to keep momentum and focus on the restoration of the Palace and Park throughout the years. The World Heritage Site Management plan outlining our commitment can be viewed upon request.
