Blenheim & Burford

Last year we had two visits to Blenheim Palace, you pay once and this allows you to get a pass so you can visit free for the rest of the year, our pass was about to expire so we thought we would have one last visit.

For the overseas readers and anyone who doesn't know - Blenheim Palace is home to the 12th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough. It is a world heritage site and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. 

I didn't take many photos as I already have plenty from previous visits, but these are the ones I took today.

The Butterfly House.

After Blenheim it was off to Burford -  Burford is a medievel town on the River Windrush in the Cotswolds hills in West Oxfordshire, it is often referred to a the gateway to the Cotswolds.

Followed by Burford Garden Company.
It was a huge place, they had everything and more in there.

A nice day out, a break from the norm.
