On the first day of our holiday we went to Blenheim Palace.
This is the home to the Dukes of Marlborough and was the home of Winston Churchill.
First we went inside but were cautious to look up when we went in. Something was watching us!!
A big palace needs a big key, right?
Inside you couldn’t look anywhere without seeing decoration.
Look over here:
Look.. well, you get the idea!
Outside there was much to do. It was the biggest grounds a house could have and they were designed by Capability Brown, a famous garden designer and this is his 300th anniversary of his birthday. We took a tour around the grounds on a golf buggy.
We went on a mini train which took us to the butterfly house and the maze and the kids playground.
We went into the butterfly house, which was really hot and steamy!
This looks like a leaf but it is actually a butterfly:
Look what we found among the ferns!
We went in the maze:
We loved it at Blenheim and got annual passes so that we can go again. I would like to go back for the Christmas Lights!
