Blenheim Palace is a stunning world heritage site with 300 years of history. It was the birthplace of Winston Churchill and you’ll find an exhibition inside dedicated to him, as well as a lot of rooms to explore. The garden is also lovely in the summer with a whopping 2000 acres to explore. No wonder it’s often referred to as Britain’s greatest palace.
