About the Churchill Exhibition at Blenheim Palace
The new Churchill Exhibition will feature a mix of historic artefacts and new technology, documenting key aspects of the adventurous life of Sir Winston Churchill, the famous wartime leader and writer.
With photographs, letters, artefacts and excerpts from his most famous speeches, you’ll gain a real sense of our ‘Greatest Briton’.
Sir Winston Churchill was born at Blenheim and returned often during his long life for parties, to paint and, to spend time with his cousin and close friend ‘Sunny’, 9th Duke of Marlborough. He also chose to propose to his beloved wife, Clementine, at Blenheim.
The exhibition will be located in an area of the Palace overlooking the Water Terraces used as an artist’s studio by the wartime leader. Blenheim’s rich military history provided huge inspiration for Churchill’s own career.
An extraordinary lifelike bust of Winston Churchill
You’ll be able to stand next to our specially commissioned and extraordinarily lifelike model of Churchill to snap the perfect memory of your visit. Designers are working with Churchill’s original tailor, hat and shoemakers to create bespoke clothing to the great man’s exact measurements.
Pre-booking is essential for all visits.
