Travels with Em - "Blenheim Palace Pleasure Gardens"

A miniature train, with a steam engine named "Winston Churchill," links Blenheim Palace with the Pleasure Gardens. These gardens were more recently formed from the old kitchen gardens.

The Pleasure Gardens is a child oriented area. I wonder if they were built to keep children out of the gravel. There is a Butterfly House where exotic butterflies are in free flight. Giant chess (reminiscent of "Alice in Wonderland") or draughs (which we know as checkers), putting greens, and a long adventure playground delighted our children . Also in the Pleasure Gardens is the Marlborough Maze, covered in a previous post.

A model of Woodstock, the town where Blenheim sits, was on display in the Pleasure Gardens.
