The Venue

Blenheim Palace situated in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England, is the principal residence of the dukes of Marlborough, and the only non-royal non-episcopal country house in England to hold the title of palace. The Palace, one of England’s largest houses, was built between 1705 and circa 1722. In 1987 the Palace was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The building of the Palace was originally intended to be a reward to John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, for the duke’s military triumphs in the 1704 Battle of Blenheim. Designed in the rare English Baroque style, with grounds landscaped by Capability Brown,  it is unique in its combined use as a family home, mausoleum and national monument. The Palace is also the birthplace and ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill.
