Enjoy a fun-filled day out this February half term at Blenheim Palace

Hop aboard the miniature train down to the Walled Garden and Adventure Play, where you can wind your way through the amazing Marlborough Maze and get ‘mooo’-ving on our Woodland Trail to help Delilah the cow find all of her animal friends. 

Meet some of the friendly Blenheim sheep in their pop-up pen and learn all about how they are cared for.

Get outdoors and explore the 2,000-acre ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped parkland. Venture through ancient oak woodland and see if you can spot any of the wonderful wildlife. If you’re venturing out for a family winter walk, why not download the Blenheim Bird Bingo sheet and try to get a full house of feathered friends?


Beyond the Walled Garden

If you’re after even more fun and adventure, head through the secret door in the wall to the Adventure Play, where a whole other world of excitement awaits.

Alongside the watercourse, slides, swings and tunnels, energetic youngsters can stay even more active with the dance sessions led by staff, and mini artists can take part in pebble painting to create their own natural masterpieces. Don’t forget to settle down for the animal-themed storytelling sessions afterwards.

Everyone of all ages can enjoy the excitement of the Adventure Play area – whether you’re zooming along the zip-lines or exploring the twisting tunnels, we want you to have fun and create memories with your loved ones.

Explorers will love playing in all of the different zones of the Adventure Play, from the vegetable patch to the wilderness. Remember to bring your wellies and wet weather gear to splish and splash in the water play, the perfect way to add an extra thrill to your day.
