When you next visit Blenheim Palace, you will see we are creating an immersive and interactive experience, in the Palace’s historic stable block. We want to showcase the importance of horses at Blenheim through the centuries.
We will be restoring the original tack room and recreating the stable office as part of the exhibition, as well as creating an area for live horse displays. There will even be a life size model of Churchill’s childhood pony Rob Roy in one of the stables and the chance for you to dress up and attempt to ride side saddle.
The display area will also highlight how Blenheim’s ancient woodland, its royal hunting lodge and ‘Capability’ Brown’s landscaped parkland have contributed to the wider Estate’s continued success.
