Take a punt in Oxford

A visit to Oxford isn't a visit to Oxford unless you take a punt on the river. Relax and soak in the surroundings. Set off south and glide gently past Oxford's famous Botanic Gardens, through Christ Church College Meadows, where Lewis Carroll taught in the mid-19th century when he wrote the famous Alice Through the Looking Glass (1871) and Alice in Wonderland (1865). Then either take the river left past St Hilda's College gardens, past the stunning Magdalen School rose gardens, under the miniature white bridges and back past the Botanic Gardens

Pop to the palace

Over the past 300 years Blenheim Palace has been the home of the Dukes of Marlborough and is home today to the 12th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and their family. As well as a private home, the Estate has been used for a huge number of other purposes throughout our history, including a hospital for wounded soldiers during World War I and a home for evacuees in World War II. In 1950, the 10th Duke of Marlborough opened Blenheim Palace to the public for the first time, and since then millions of visitors have passed through its doors establishing it as one of the finest heritage attractions in the UK.
