Blenheim Palace at Christmas 2023INCLUDED Visitor Destination
Two festive experiences, one unrivalled setting... This Christmas at Blenheim Palace there will be a new trail and a new exquisitely themed Palace interior.
The story of Sleeping Beauty with a contemporary twist - The interiors of majestic Blenheim Palace are always magical, but at Christmas they are transformed and filled with beautiful scenes that delight the senses. Explore the Palace rooms transformed by the retelling of this classic fairy-tale for a new generation, from the Great Hall filled by a huge glistening Christmas tree to the candle-lit bedchamber where Aurora sleeps, watched over by the Lilac Fairy. Wander through the evil fairy’s lair filled with toads, potions and menacing crows, then onto the busy castle kitchen frozen in time. Along the way watch out for spinning wheels, fluttering fairies and as the story unfolds, vines creeping everywhere. Looking for a happy-ever-after, the Lilac Fairy helps True Love to find a way through the woods and together they reawaken the castle after 100 very sleepy years….
A magical after-dark trail for 2023 - The Great Outdoors in a brand-new light - As dusk falls, follow the illuminated trail as it sparkles through the picture book grounds of Blenheim. A multitude of twinkling lights and seasonal sounds fill the air with festive fun. Firmly positioned as unmissable within the UK’s seasonal calendar, this has everything you need for an unforgettable time with friends and family, including a magical glimpse of Father Christmas along the way. Discover heart-shaped arches glittering in the moonlight, glowing tunnels filled with stars and an 8 metre sphere filled with over 20,000 moving LEDs , just some of the new displays to see this year. You will also see the ever-popular dancing reflections in the colourful Cascades and magical Lakeside walk.
Grab a perfectly festive bite to eat in the East Courtyard as hand-picked street food vendors bring an indulgent twist to the tempting treats on offer. Complete your walk under the stars with a spiced winter warmer, hot chocolate or toasted marshmallow and share it with someone special.
