We have created an immersive and interactive experience in the Palace’s historic stable block showcasing the importance of horses at Blenheim through the centuries. We have restored the original tack room and recreated the stable office as part of the exhibition, as well as creating an area for live horse displays. 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. This permanent exhibition is free with a Palace, Park & Gardens ticket or valid Annual Pass.
The display area also highlights how Blenheim’s ancient woodland, its royal hunting lodge and ‘Capability’ Brown’s landscaped parkland have contributed to the wider Estate’s continued success.
