In January 2023, we embarked on an innovative conservation project to reinstate the roof of The Orangery to its original slate composition. It is the first Grade 1 listed building to carry out a project of this kind. This process involved the removal of the existing glass ceiling, repalcing it with a hand crafted timber and slate structure.
Over the course of the last three centuries, The Orangery has fulfilled a range of roles, from a greenhouse and conservatory to a theatre, an art gallery, office spaces, and most recently a restaurant.
In October 2023, our refurbished Orangery is set to open. Enjoy refreshments at our new and fresh bar space or make a reservation for a scrumptious Sunday lunch. Experience elegant dining with our Afternoon Tea, featuring authentically British, house-made scones, delightful sweet treats, and an array of dainty sandwiches.
Our afternoon teas are available to book from Friday 20th October and are available daily between 12.00 - 16.00.
Sunday lunch is available to book from Sunday 22nd October - Sunday 12th November. Bookings will then pause during Christmas at Blenheim Palace and reopen on Sunday 7th January 2024. You can see the new menu below.

We will also be serving themed afternoon teas during Halloween at Blenheim Palace and Christmas at Blenheim Palace, which can be booked during your purchase of Halloween or Christmas tickets. You can see the menus below and find out more on the event pages.
