Neverland® in the Palace

Join us for a swashbuckling adventure in Neverland, a place bursting with magic and make believe. Follow Tinkerbell through our State rooms as she sprinkles fairy dust over baubles and Christmas trees, wander through a moonlit London skyline and onto the Mermaid Lagoon.

JM Barrie gifted the rights to Peter Pan to Great Ormond Street Hospital in 1929 and we are pleased to be supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity this Christmas.

£1 will be added at basket stage for every Neverland in the Palace ticket and Neverland Afternoon Tea as a charitable contribution which Blenheim Palace Heritage Foundation will collect and give (less VAT) to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (Registered charity no. 1160024).

The Great Outdoors in a brand-new light

Blenheim Palace is a place where new memories are made as a multitude of glowing lights and Christmassy sounds fill the air with festive fun.

Firmly positioned as one of the UK’s leading illuminated trails and unmissable within the seasonal calendar, this has everything you need for an unforgettable time with friends and family, including a magical glimpse of Father Christmas along the way.

Enjoy our wonderful Christmas Market

The Christmas Market in The Great Court

From Friday 15th November until Sunday 22nd December shoppers and foodies can escape the bustle of The High Street and stock-up on festive goodies at the celebrated Christmas Market in The Great Court.

The seasonal village of wooden chalets offers everything from inspired Christmas gift ideas to tasty treats, and if you have worked up an appetite, there is a tempting selection of street food stalls to share with loved ones under the stars.

The whole day was superb...

...beautiful gardens to walk around, lovely Christmas market, huge gift shop, we had afternoon tea in The Orangery, the Palace was amazing and so much effort has gone into producing the theme. Well done to all the team who helped create this magical experience. We will definitely be returning next year.

The most magical day...

We visited today and had the most magical time, I would 100% recommend to anyone. The staff were all lovely and the whole day is really well organised and planned. I can honestly say it's the best Christmas day out we have ever had as a family.

Beautiful and magical

Absolutely beautiful and magical, the light trail was excellent. I thought you couldn't top the Snow Queen theme but Blenheim Palace the Sleeping Beauty theme was outstanding! Well done to everyone involved.
