Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace is situated in the market town of Woodstock in Oxfordshire. The palace is one of England's largest houses and the only non-royal country house to hold the status of 'Palace'. in the year 1704, the battle of Blenheim was won, led by John Churchill the 1st Duke of Marlborough. He was given the park, Woodstock manor and £240,000 to build the palace as a gift from Queen Anne and a grateful nation for winning the war. In 1722 the palace was completed with a chapel erected in 1733. In November 1874, Winston Churchill was born at the Palace - he later became Prime minister in May 1940. During the world war 1 the palace was used as a convalescence hospital for wounded soldiers. In April 1950 the palace opened its doors to the public for the first time and in 1987 it was designated a UNESCO world heritage site. Receive a warm welcome into the home of the 12th duke and duchess of Marlborough, you will be enthralled as you walk through this masterpiece of 19th century English Baroque architecture, boasting some of the countries finest portraits and paintings, a fantastic exhibition of the two great war leaders - the 'Churchill's Destiny', the 2000 acres of perfectly landscaped parkland and much much more.

Cotswold TV Tourism

  • The Cotswolds is one of Great Britain's most popular tourism destinations. With a wide selection of enjoyments for all ages the Cotswolds has everything from beautiful countryside to walk, explore and enjoy through to designer shops, galleries and museums.

    We are very lucky to have the multi award winning Dormy House Hotel in Broadway as sponsor of Tourism on Cotswold TV, making the coverage of community spirited tourist attractions, towns, villages, events and more possible on Cotswold TV.

    Perched high above the village of Broadway, with fabulous views across the Cotswolds, Dormy House is the perfect rural retreat. Think cosy corners, log fires and sumptuous interiors. Like home, but better. Built around a 17th century farmhouse, Dormy House is a lesson in fine design. It’s only when you step inside that you begin to understand what the Dormy is really about. Contemporary design meets Cotswold chic. It’s a relaxing place where you’re encouraged to put your feet up. After all, isn’t that what furniture is really for?

    Not only for staying the night, Dormy House has long been at the centre of the Cotswold’s gastronomic map with two delicious dining experiences. The Garden Room restaurant proves that fine dining doesn’t have to be fussy while next door The Potting Shed is all about great local grub.

    Thank you Dormy House for promoting the Cotswolds with us, here on Cotswold TV.
