As one of the UK’s grandest and most esteemed buildings, Blenheim Palace is the perfect location for a wedding or important celebration. Located in the heart of England’s South East, just off the River Glyme, and just ten miles from historic Oxford, Blenheim Palace has the charm and character to serve as a venue for any special occasion.
The current residence of the Duke of Marlborough, this alluring estate is steeped in its own rich history. Blenheim’s 2000 acre grounds were designed by lionised landscape architect ‘Capability’ Brown in the 18th Century. One hundred years later, Blenheim served as the birthplace of one of Britain’s greatest public figures, Sir Winston Churchill himself.

Spectacular outdoor scenery
Blenheim Palace’s stunning vistas, with an inspiring Italian garden and magnificent water terrace, serve as some of the most sumptuous backdrops you could want for any kind of event. The palace’s south lawn is ideal for larger events like traditional Indian, Asian and Jewish weddings, as well as sizeable parties and corporate events.
This scenery can be enjoyed in the open air, or we can erect a marquee to give events more of an intimate feel. Blenheim Palace is regularly used as a filming location for productions hoping to capture some of its charm. Films featuring scenes recorded on the grounds include Cinderella, The Young Victoria, Hamlet, Barry Lyndon, and entries in the Harry Potter and James Bond series.VIEW OUR PORTFOLIO
