World Heritage Site

We see heritage as our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations.

The heritage status of the Palace, Park and Gardens 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.

Our World Heritage Site status comes with 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 full World Heritage Site Management plan outlining our commitment can be viewed using the link below.

As a World Heritage Site in the UK, Blenheim Palace is part of the GoUNESCO UK Travel Challenge - an incentivised challenge to encourage more visitors, both from the UK and abroad, to discover the magic and beauty of our heritage.

GoUNESCO is a UNESCO-supported umbrella of initiatives with the goal of making heritage fun and interesting. Since 2012, they have created channels to engage with heritage, both online and offline, inspiring and engaging travellers with Travel Challenges, student programs, Go Heritage Runs and a distributed social media campaign called #makeheritagefun.
