Blenheim Palace’s Christmas Market to return bigger than ever

Blenheim Palace’s Great Court will be once again transformed into a spectacular Christmas Market from 18 November to 18 December this year.

Traditional wooden chalets will showcase a range of festive treats for designer-makers and artisan food and drink producers – and this year’s market will be the biggest ever, with up to 80 stall holders selling their wares.

Taking place against the beautiful backdrop of the baroque Oxfordshire Palace, the seasonal market is the perfect way to escape the bustle of the high street and the boredom of online shopping to really savour the yuletide atmosphere.

Filled with a variety of hand-picked, irresistible gifts, unique works by a range of designers and tempting treats to taste and take home, it’s the perfect addition to a Christmas day out at Blenheim Palace.

Gifts include everything from handcrafted silver and gold jewellery, paintings and pet portraits, to locally hand-poured soy candles, fresh flowers and natural coconut bowls.

Get in the festive spirit and try winter warming tipples – from honey whiskey, traditional and flavoured rums and gin from the Hebridean island of Colonsay. There are craft vodkas from Sapling Spirits, who plant a tree for every bottle they make – all adding to the feel-good factor as you buy.

Handpicked British cheeses and locally sourced charcuterie are perfect for seasonal feasts and those with a sweet tooth will discover artisan cookies, Belgian chocolate brownies, gingerbread and traditional sweets.

The Christmas Market is part of a whole host of festive entertainment on offer at Britain’s greatest palace.

Blenheim Palace’s spectacular State Rooms have been transformed into a fairy-tale fantasy to retell the enchanting The Kingdom of the Snow Queen, whilst the estate’s parkland and gardens host the Illuminated festive trail, offering after-dark magic for all the family.

Christmas Market entry is free including access with tickets to the indoor and outdoor trails. A combined ticket is available so visitors can enjoy the whole festive experience at a reduced rate.

The Christmas Market is brought to you by leading events promoter RGL (a division of Sony Music), in partnership with Blenheim Palace and Living Crafts Events.
