Summary of The Day: Blenheim Palace
Blenheim Palace is a masterpiece of English Baroque architecture and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. The stunning State Rooms are brimming with priceless works of art and magnificent tapestries. The Palace is still inhabited today by the Duke of Marlborough. The Gardens are set in over 754 hectares of land with an exquisite water garden.
An official guide will take you through the Blenheim Palace State Rooms, bringing the history of this fabulous palace to life.
This region of outstanding natural beauty is characterized by attractive small towns and thatched villages of yellow Cotswold stone made prosperous by the historic wool trade.
We'll make a short stop in the village of Bibury, once described by William Morris as "the most beautiful village in England." There you will see Arlington Row, a row of weavers cottages built of local stone. Then we'll continue to Bourton-on-the-Water, the Little Venice of the Cotswolds. Its picturesque High Street is flanked by shaded greens, and the River Windrush, spanned by several arched stone bridges, runs alongside.
Downton Abbey Village
In the village of Bampton, we'll visit the street where many scenes from the Downton Abbey TV series were filmed. You can see the Church where a number of Downton events were hosted, from weddings and funerals to the Downton Fair. Next to the church is Churchgate House, used as the Crawley family home, and the old Grammar School which now houses the Bampton Library. The street is also the location for two local pubs, The Grantham Arms and The Dog & Duck.
