Award-winning photographer goes Behind the Lens at Blenheim Palace

Award-winning photographer Pete Seaward is giving our visitors the chance to go behind the lens as part of a new exhibition.

‘Behind The Lens - a Palace for all Seasons’ is on display in The Stables Café and features images Pete has captured of our Palace, Estate and especially the abundant wildlife found here at Blenheim throughout the year.

Pete, who is based near Blenheim Palace, is a regular visitor to the UNESCO World Heritage Site and uses a mobile wildlife hide to help capture his beautifully atmospheric images.

“With these photographs there’s been no digital trickery, just many hours of patiently waiting, early morning starts, and lots of coffee!” said Pete.

“I hope these pictures will inspire visitors to see this wonderful location with its incredible history, to visit frequently and be amazed at its splendour from every angle as I certainly have,” he added.

Pete has been a photographer for over 30 years. Working mainly on advertising campaigns, he's travelled the world extensively for major international clients.

He was voted one of Lürzer’s Archive’s 200 best Ad Photographers in the world and won 'Travel Photographer of the Year 2011' by the British Travel Press.

The Stables Café is located in the West Courtyard and is the ideal location to have breakfast, lunch, tea and cakes surrounded by artwork.

To help families enjoy a year of magical memories, we are including a free child Annual Pass (aged 3-16) with every adult Annual Pass with a start date before 31st March*.
