Blenheim PalaceAlthough built in 1714 Blenheim Palace is probably most famous for being the birth place of Sir Winston Churchill, born on the 30th November 1874 at 01.30am.
Even though this was not his official home he spent many happy years here and in 1908 standing by the lake he proposed to his wife, Miss Clementine Hozier. Part of the Palace is dedicated to a Churchill exhibition, including his birth room, pictures and statues.
Churchill and his wife are buried just outside Blenheim Palace in a nearby churchyard at Bladon, beside his parents Lord and Lady Randolph Churchill.
Blenheim Palace consists of many exciting rooms, like the Great Hall, Sallon (which is a grand dining room with wonderful murals and paintings by Louis Laguerre). There are three glamorous state rooms, with an extremely long library.
During your visit to Blenheim Palace, take the time to visit the gardens surrounding Blenheim Palace, which consist of a tranquil Water Terrace along with the peaceful Italian Garden and stunning Rose Garden.
