Blenheim Palace

Published by at 6:24 am under Uncategorized

Today Jared and I headed off to Blenheim Palace. It is about 30 min from Oxford. It cost 19 pounds each to enter, ugh! A very expensive day. It was a long walk just to get to the front door.We went on two tours. Evidently Winston Churchill was born here in a cloak room! He did not grow up/live here though, but he did visit his grandparents here. This house was actually given to John Churchill by Queen Anne for his victory of many battles. I wasn’t allowed to take any photos inside (rats!), so I only have outside ones.The grounds were huge. We have really sore feet after all of the walking.lovely, lovely, lovely.I found a little place of trees, that I just had to sit amongst. This little area reminded me of my childhood, when I would go and play in the forest at the top of our street in Tasmania.I saw some cute flies. They are all fluffy, with an orange bottom.I also found a cute little coat for 1 pound in the local op shop. I know, I don’t have a little girl anymore, but I can still give it to someone, it’s so cute.Today in the paper, which costs 80p, you get a free dvd on the royal marriages, so I got two.
