Blenheim Palace
Thursday 19 March 2020

Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire is the home of the Duke of Marlborough.  The estate was originally given by Queen Anne to John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough, for his victory over the French at the battle of Blenheim.  A visit to Blenheim Palace offers an unforgettable experience.  

 It’s a chance to share the splendours of Baroque architecture designed in the 1700s by Vanbrugh and Hawksmoor, to wonder at the collections of art, tapestry and antiques and to explore the Park and Gardens and discover landscapes crafted by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown to form magnificent vistas of English countryside. 

Tickets for this outing will be available at the January and February 2020 lecture meetings.
