Blenheim is a landed Estate, but one which passionately believes that it can be a unique force for good, underwriting and driving the success of the area. In addition to being a major visitor attraction, Blenheim is also a venue for weddings and events, a filming location, a significant farmer, a producer of Natural Mineral Water, a major property owner and investor, a construction business, and a charitable foundation. It has set out a clear purpose to be the lifeblood of the local economy, to enhance the lives of local people and to share and protect its extraordinary home and it measures all it does against those ambitions.
