Escape the bustle of the high street and soak up the festive atmosphere of the Christmas market set against the magnificent backdrop of Blenheim Palace. Within wooden chalets, the market is filled with a variety of hand-picked, irresistible gifts, unique works by a range of designers and tempting treats for foodies. With ceramics, textiles, homewares, leather goods, jewellery, toys, stationery, bags, hats and so much more, it is the perfect place to begin your Christmas shopping.
The towering Tunnel of Light will once again twinkle with over 100,000 pea-lights, while the woodland Laser Garden and the scented Fire Garden all return. The Water Terrace light finale dances across the historic façade to much-loved Christmas classics. Complete your walk under the stars with mulled cider, mulled wine or a hot chocolate. Gather around the fire-pit with family and friends and toast marshmallows. End the evening browsing the well-stocked gift shop in the East Courtyard. Each year Blenheim Palace has a different house theme which is not to be missed this is not being announced until late April 2020 along with prices. Did you know the palace was relatively cheap to build given its size and grandeur costing only £300,000 back in the 18th Century?
