A trip to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.
The Palace was gifted by a very grateful Queen Anne to the Duke of Marlborough after winning the decisive Battle of Blenheim in the War of Spanish Succession. Many would argue that this victory was an important stage in Britain becoming the powerful nation of the 18th and 19th Centuries.
Winston Churchill was also born here. He was cousin to a more recent Duke and spent much of his childhood at the Palace.
