Blenheim Palace

Post by sujin007 on Sat Nov 17, 2012 2:07 pm

Blenheim Palace is the only palace in Britain which isn’t a royal home. It was given to the first Duke of Marlborough for his whipping butt in the War of the Spanish Succession.

It is one of the biggest homes in Britain covering seven acres and it is the birthplace of Winston Churchill, related to the duke. who proposed to his wife there.

Upkeep is a little pricey so you can now buy tickets to tour the place. As an added bonus the current Duke often wanders around and chats with the visitors.
