In the Grounds of Blenheim Palace


Blenheim Palace - the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill - is a short bus ride from Oxford. It has been many years since I last visited and once again was taken by the history and magnificence of the setting. 

Home to the 11th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough, walking amongst the palace buildings and the beautiful formal gardens is an enjoyable way to spend a day immersed in historic surrounds.

  1. This is probably artificial lake? Or farm water reservoir? The girl looks great at that corner of the photo to compliment the ambiance of the water.
