Summer Holiday Entertainment

During July and August

Visit us this summer to discover a huge range of fun family events and activities.

From pony rides to mad science workshops and Victorian street urchins; we have a full calendar of events for families to enjoy at Blenheim Palace this summer. 

Take the miniature train down to the Pleasure Gardens and get lost in the giant Marlborough Maze, and don't miss the bright and colourful delights of the Butterfly House! Catch your breath in the tranquil Lavender Garden whilst the children burn off some energy in our recently-refurbished Adventure Playground and new bouncy castle.
