Blenheim Park Walks
This circular walk starts at the magnificent Blenheim palace and takes you on a tour of the beautiful gardens.
The park includes 2,000 acres of Capability Brown landscaped parkland, the great lake, beautiful formal gardens, resident deer and a waterfall.
The palace is home to the 11th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. It is also a World Heritage Site.
The park is located in the market town of Woodstock near Oxford. For a longer route you could try our Woodstock Circular Walk which visits the park using the Wychwood Way and Oxford Green Belt Way long distance trails. This walk uses public footpaths to take you through the woodland and along the top of the lakes.
