Gosport & Fareham Area | Blenheim Palace Flower Show Coach Trip

Blenheim Palace has more than 300 years of history to discover, it offers visitors an immersive and fascinating experience. 

Blenheim Palace was built in the early 18th Century to celebrate victory over the French in the War of the Spanish Succession.  In particular, it was built as a gift to the 1st Duke of Marlborough, John Churchill, the military commander who led the Allied forces in the Battle of Blenheim on 13th August 1704.

Marlborough himself received the surrender from Marshall Tallard, leader of the French forces, following the battle.  To honour the Duke’s heroic victories, Queen Anne granted his family the ruined Royal Manor and park at Woodstock, along with £240,000 with which to build a house to mark the occasion.  It was also the home of Winston Churchill and there is an interesting exhibition about his life and achievements to explore.

The timing of our visit will coincide with the ever-popular Flower Show which is within held within the grounds and celebrates the very best of gardening in the UK and is packed with inspiration and colour. 

The Grand Floral Pavilion will be full of the UK’s finest nurseries and growers giving you expert advice and ideas for your garden.  The shopping village will feature an abundance of trade stands selling everything from unique garden gazebos, greenhouses and arbours to beautiful flowers, gardening sundries and hundreds of other products from over 250 of the UK’s leading exhibitors.

We will be travelling by coach and it will leave from Anns Hill Cemetery, Anns Hill Road, Gosport at 08.30 so that we will arrive at Blenheim Palace about 10.30.  You will then have free time to explore the Flower show and the Palace before we leave to return to Gosport at 16.00.
