BBC Countryfile Live is returning to Blenheim Palace from the 1-4 August 2019. 2019 will see two events being staged on 1–4 August at Blenheim Palace and 2 weeks later at Castle Howard.
Blenheim is a hugely diverse business with a duty to preserve their legacy, a responsibility to continually evolve, and a need to sustain the strong connection with the community. The birthplace of Sir Winston Churchhill, Blenheim Palace was built in the early 18th Century to celebrate a magnificent victory over the French in the War of the Spanish Succession.
Today, the Palace attracts visitors from around the world and is a filming location, a venue for weddings and events, as well as a producer and supplier of Natural Mineral Water. Blenheim Estate is rich in forestry and farming practices, a landowner and construction business with a portfolio of residential and commercial properties.
'Our duty is to leave a lasting legacy for this great Estate to be enjoyed by future generations'
