Blenheim Palace at Christmas

Blenheim Palace at Christmas

“Discover the magic of Christmas at Blenheim Palace. See the State Rooms seasonally decorated; walk the spectacular illuminated trail through festive gardens; escape the high street bustle and soak up the festive atmosphere at the Christmas market, set against the magnificent backdrop of the Palace.”

Day 1

Start the outward journey and travel to Blenheim Palace, with a suitable comfort stop along the way. Entrance to the palace is booked for 1pm. The State Rooms are seasonally decorated and
lavishly themed. Explore the Palace & grounds with time to purchase lunch. Later, head to The Formal Gardens for the Light Trail which is booked for 5pm. This picture-perfect Estate will be illuminated for an unforgettable after-dark festive trail along winding paths, beside tranquil waters and through extraordinary Parkland landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown. Explore the scented Fire Garden; a circular carpet of dancing flames, adorned with lanterns, set against the backdrop of glittering ancient woodland outlined in Christmas colour. The lake will be aglow with brightly-lit boats filled with snowflakes and presents while, in the distance, fountain jets dance and the woodland across the Great Lake Vista springs to life in time to much-loved Christmas music. The Cascades will be bathed in light and the Temple of Diana, where Winston Churchill proposed, will become the perfect romantic setting for special mistletoe moments. Sip a spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate whilst the aroma of roasting chestnuts fills the air. Soak up the atmosphere at the Christmas Market in the Great Court. Within wooden chalets, the market will be filled with a variety of hand-picked irresistible gifts, unique works by a range of designers and tempting treats. After this magical Christmas event, travel to the hotel where we sit down to dinner approx. 8pm.

Day 2

After breakfast we check out of the hotel and return to home area visiting Oxford, a bustling cosmopolitan town, for lunch to be purchased. Oxford, The City of Dreaming Spires, is famous all over the world for its University and place in history. There is a huge number of food and drink options throughout the city and there is something for every budget and taste. Perhaps do a little bit of Christmas shopping here before returning to home area.
