Set in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, Blenheim Palace is considered to be one of the finest baroque houses in the country, a gift from Queen Anne and a grateful nation to John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, in recognition of his famous victory over the French at the Battle of Blenheim in 1704. Inside the Palace can be found a superb collection of tapestries, paintings, porcelain and furniture in the magnificent state rooms. The Palace is set in 2,000 acres of ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped Park and award winning Formal Gardens including the Italian Garden, the Rose Garden and the Secret Garden. Sir Winston Churchill was born at Blenheim Palace in 1874 and a permanent exhibition about him is located next to his birth room - both are included in the Palace tour. He is buried in a simple grave in the nearby church at Bladon. A separate exhibition, 'Churchill's' Destiny - The Story of Two Great war Leaders', celebrates the achievements of Winston and his great hero and ancestor, John Churchill. A state-of-the-art visitor experience is open in the heart of the Palace called 'Blenheim Palace: the Untold Story'
