Visit the only Christmas Market held at a Palace this Christmas. From 22 November – 15 December Blenheim Palace’s Great Court will be transformed into a seasonal market showcasing a range of festive treats from around 50 designer-makers and artisan food and drink producers in cosy, traditional wooden chalets.

Taking place beneath the stunning backdrop of the baroque Oxfordshire Palace, visitors can escape the bustle of the high street and soak up the yuletide atmosphere.

Filled with a variety of hand-picked, irresistible gifts, unique works by a range of designers and tempting treats for foodies, it’s the perfect addition to a Christmas day out at Blenheim Palace.
