Please note that this is now closed for bookings and there will be no further additions.
Final numbers have already been passed to Blenheim to enable them to plan their staffing/guides for our visit.
I will keep a waiting list should anyone drop out.
Join us for a visit to Blenheim Palace, one of England’s largest stately homes, set in 2000 acres of landscaped parkland. It is also the birthplace of Winston Churchill, a World Heritage Site and an “on location” set to many films and TV productions.
There is choice of two tours:
Children’s Tour for children aged approx 5-12yrs
“A general children’s tour is available for school groups of all age. It is designed to give children a fun insight to the history of the Palace and the people who have lived here over the past 300 years.”
Churchill Tour and Business Studies talk for children aged 13-16yrs (this is GCSE level and participants will need to be working at that level).
“In this commemorative year we have introduced an educational tour focusing on Sir Winston Churchill and his connection to Blenheim Palace.”
and “How Blenheim Estate and Palace is run as a business. It is vital that funds are generated for restoration and conservation to ensure the longevity of Blenheim Palace for generations to come.”
Please ensure you choose the right option, depending on whether you want to do the Business Studies talk which will be after the tour (there will be a short break in between)
Adults may accompany their children – but must please remember to remain quiet during the tour/talk, as background noise/chat is disruptive for both the children and the guides.
Afterwards, your ticket may be converted to an annual pass at no extra charge, if you wish.
