Blenheim Palace and the surrounding Estate lie at the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside on the fringe of the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). 

We take great pride in being custodians of the land, farming to raise the finest local produce as well as conserving the Park landscape, ancient woodlands and extensive rights of way across the Estate. The Estate consists of 12000 acres of land and 2000 acres within the Park. 

As both a World Heritage Site and the site of several Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), we aim to preserve the natural habitat for all who visit the wider Blenheim Palace Estate. The most notable SSSI areas are the Great Lake, Queen Pool and High Park. The 110-acre lake created by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown forms the centrepiece of his landscaped Park and Gardens.
