Blenheim Palace Gardens is over two thousand acres of parkland and formal gardens. We started at the Water Terrace, which we came across after exiting the Chapel. This statue shocked me as it is based on someone but who ?

We decided to walk the river walk against the banks of the River Glyme. There we found a boathouse.

And considering how many people we had experienced at the Palace. This walk was very quiet not many people about. We reached the Pump House and Cascade.

There is also the Secret Gardem, which is filled with acers and ferns, you could also visit the Temple Of Health and Roundel. We exited with the idea of leaving but came across the Pleasure Gardens, and changed our plan to visit.

We went into the maze, where I got lost and my husband found me, we meet a few butterflies. It was a lovely afternoon. Blenheim Palace Garden is such a lovely place to visit and I am glad I got the chance.
