Behind the scenes tour at Blenheim Palace



Discover the real ‘Behind the Scenes’ at Blenheim Palace, in a fascinating limited edition tour for 2018.

‘Restoration & Conservation’ will be the theme of the guided tours which will begin in the New Year as part of the extended opening season experience offered to visitors at the Oxford World Heritage Site.
 
The ‘Restoration & Conservation’ tour will be exclusively available from 5th January – 28th February, running twice per day excluding Sundays. The new tours will tie in to the annual deep clean of Blenheim Palace which will now be on full to visitors during this period. The tour will give an in-depth look into what is being done in each of the State Rooms.
 
Kate Ballenger, House Manager at Blenheim Palace: “Each year, when the Palace is usually closed, the Operations team, accompanied by various specialists, complete the ‘deep clean’. This process is much more than just cleaning, it is the careful review of the entire collection followed by a thorough cleaning programme alongside the ongoing conservation and restoration work.
 
This tour of the Palace gives insights into both the deep clean and the conservation and restoration that is happening at present and has happened in the past.”
