Home to the Duke of Marlborough and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Blenheim Palace is a grand aristocratic home befitting the high status of a Dukedom. There is one way to arrive at the Palace, and that is to drive through the victory gate into Capability Brown's world-famous landscaped grounds. Tour the magnificent staterooms. Stroll around the formal gardens and stroll through the collection of Italian, secret, rose, and pleasure gardens along with the water terraces.
Take a journey through England's timeless countryside and visit the pretty villages surrounded by the Cotswold Hills. England's largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). See traditional thatched cottages and delightful shops full of unusual and unique items. Stop at Chipping Campden, the perfect Cotswolds market town, with its old pubs, tea rooms and a quaint market hall. Bibury first earned its title of 'the most beautiful village in England' from the artist and craftsman, William Morris.
During the afternoon you may wish to tour some of the quintessentially English gardens of the Cotswolds region. Tour Hidcote Manor Gardens is one of England's most exquisite gardens. The design of Hidcote is laid out as a series of garden rooms; a dreamlike place set high in the Cotswold Hills. The herbaceous borders and chambers of hedges add to the theme and character of the garden - every corner turned brings a smile to the face.
