Viewing Christmas at Blenheim Palace

For the ultimate festive experience with kids, hop on a train to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, where the great rooms have been transformed into a fantastical winter wonderland. Explore the glistening land of Snowflakes before venturing into the sparkling Kingdom of Ice filled with larger-than-life crystals. But is it really happy-ever-after? Or will the Snow Queen seek her revenge?

Afterwards, make tracks for the Orangery to try the Ice Kingdom afternoon tea. Enjoy devil on horseback and mini raisin scones before indulging in a selection of sweet treats including Gateaux opera and mint and chocolate macaroons. Next up the Christmas Market in the Great Court, where you’ll find a wide range of artisan products and gifts.

For those keen to extend the Blenheim experience, book tickets to the celebrated after-dark illuminated trail. As you meander around the picture-perfect grounds, you’ll encounter glittering tunnels, flickering flames and trees drenched in jewel-like colours. Enhance your walk under the stars with a spiced winter warmer or hot chocolate from one of the participating street food vendors.
