Blenheim Palace is surrounded by over 2,000 acres of stunning parkland and award-winning formal gardens. The splendour and tranquillity of “Capability” Brown’s landscaped park and great lake fringed by majestic oaks and maples is unrivalled in Britain. Over 100 acres of Formal Gardens include the Secret Garden, majestic Water Terraces, The Rose Garden and the Duke of Marlborough’s ornate private garden; The Italian Garden. Walks to the Grand Cascade or across Vanbrugh’s Grand Bridge to the Column of Victory take in views of the magnificent grounds; there is beauty to be found in all seasons.

Designed by Sir John Vanbrugh, The Orangery was originally the place where the Orange trees that adorn the formal gardens were grown. Exuding an air of striking elegance from the moment you reach its pillared entrance, The Orangery can accommodate up to 250 guests for a civil ceremony or 180 guests for a wedding breakfast. 

Guests can enter through the private entrance onto the terrace, which overlooks the ornate Italian Garden. The Orangery is not open to the public and therefore is available for exclusive use for the whole day and evening up to midnight.
