Designed in the short-lived English Baroque style, the palace is unique in its combined usage as a family home, mausoleum, and national monument. Also notable as the birthplace and ancestral home of Winston Churchill, the building includes one of the finest art collections in Europe. Guided tours, included in the admission price, are available throughout the day. You can also choose to join a themed tour, which includes an extended series of special-interest lectures and walks though the palace’s historic chambers.

Lovely family home. Converted tickets into annual passes. Came Back for the second day visit to look round the beautiful gardens. Saw the house on the first day. We will be back to explore further. Cafe was good. Sandwiches were tasty and fresh. Today was a car fest of luxury cars. Separate tickets. The drive to the house was lined with prestige motors. Never seen so many prestige motors in one place in my life. Absolutely amazing.
Great visit. House guide was informative. Pity upstairs and downstairs were not on tour. Gardens were well kept and we had a lovely walk to the cascades.
