Our new Churchill Exhibition features a mix of historic artefacts and new technology, documenting key aspects of the adventurous life of Sir Winston Churchill, the famous wartime leader and writer. With photographs, letters, artefacts and excerpts from his most famous speeches, you'll gain a real sense of our ‘Greatest Briton’. This permanent exhibition is free with a Palace, Park & Gardens ticket or valid Annual Pass.
Sir Winston Churchill was born at Blenheim and returned often during his long life for parties, to paint and to spend time with his cousin and close friend ‘Sunny’, 9th Duke of Marlborough. He also chose to propose to his beloved wife, Clementine at Blenheim. The exhibition is located in an area of the Palace overlooking the Water Terraces used as an artist’s studio by the wartime leader. Blenheim’s rich military history provided huge inspiration for Churchill’s own career.
Stand next to our specially commissioned and extraordinarily lifelike model of Churchill to snap the perfect memory of your visit. Our designers (ME&C Creative), sculptor (Jethro Crabb) and colour artist (Sue Day) worked alongside Churchill’s original tailor, hat and shoemakers to create bespoke clothing to the great man’s exact measurements.
