Christmas at Blenheim Palace 2022

It’s never too early to plan the perfect family get-together

They know that the decorations have just come down and the last mince pies are still in the cupboard, however with the magic of Christmas at Blenheim Palace 2021 still fresh in your mind they have decided to go on-sale with Christmas 2022 in January …. There will be a new trail and a new exquisitely themed Palace interior, plan now to secure the date and time of your choice.

The after-dark illuminated trail sparkling in The Great Outdoors

Firmly positioned as one of the highlights of the UK festive calendar, wander the Palace’s picture-perfect gardens filled with Christmas cheer as over a million lights and seasonal sounds fill the air. Look forward to some time together with family and friends as you discover glittering tunnels of light, dancing lakeside reflections and trees drenched in jewel-like colour. For a moment of reflection, pause at mesmerising flickering flames in the fire garden, larger-than-life illuminations and don’t forget to glimpse Father Christmas along the way.

Their crew of talented independent street food vendors bring a delicious twist to tempting treats on offer. To make it perfectly festive, complete your walk under the stars with a *spiced winter warmer or *hot chocolate shared with someone special.

The Kingdom of the Snow Queen re-imagined within Britain’s Greatest Palace

New for 2022, explore the Palace rooms, each one exquisitely transformed and filled with hidden surprises - discover the glistening Land of Snowflakes filled with a silvery frost-covered forest and venture into the wintery Kingdom of Ice adorned with larger-than-life shimmering crystals. It’s a fairy-tale world where they really want a happy-ever-after. Will the ice-cold Snow Queen ever change her ways? Perhaps the kind reindeer will save the day and help reunite the two young friends. This fantastical winter wonderland is where the magic really begins….

The Christmas Market

The Christmas Market will be returning in 2022, with many designer/maker craft traders who will be housed in wooden chalets in the Great Court. Their distinctive range of artisan products will make perfect treats and gifts this Christmas.

Your very merriest Christmas starts here.
