Autumn at Britain's Greatest Palace

Crunching leaves, vibrant views and the red-tinted golden hues of autumn make this earthy season the perfect time to visit Blenheim Palace's parks and gardens. Put on your wellies and walk through our peaceful parkland, with trails and wildlife boards for guests of all ages to get involved.

Wander the magnificent Palace State Rooms to learn about the fascinating history of the Palace with behind the scenes stories and extra tours. There's new exhibitions full of art, history, wildlife and of course, Churchill's Birth Room.

We have activities, events and entertainment for all the family this season with our new Autumn Festival and Halloween events.
