Visit Churchill’s Grave

A buggy shuttle service is available daily and will take you from Blenheim Palace to the gate in our Park that is closest to the neighbouring village of Bladon. A short walk from this gate will take you to St Martin’s Church, the yard in which Sir Winston Churchill and many members of his family are laid to rest. Visiting the grave of Churchill is the perfect way to discover the importance of Blenheim Palace to his life, from beginning to end.

The buggy shuttle will be running daily at regular intervals between 11:30 and 14:00. The return journey incurs a small fee of £3.00 per adult and £2.00 per child.
