Out and about in Woodstock

Woodstock is situated 8 miles north of Oxford and is popular because of the spectacular Blenheim Palace which was originally the home of Sir Winston Churchill who was born there in 1874 and is buried nearby at Bladon churchyard.

Blenheim Palace was designed by John Vanbrugh for John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough. It was given in gratitude for his victory over the French and Bavarians at Blenheim in 1704. The grounds around the house were landscaped by Capability Brown.

There are numerous quaint tea rooms, restaurants and shops to be found in the town when you are out and about in Woodstock.

When out and about in Woodstock make sure you visit the Church of Magdalene which was re-built in the 19th century and which has a musical clock that plays tunes on the hour. Also visit the 18th century town hall and the 17th century Fletcher’s house which is now the museum. The house of the poet Chaucer can be found in Park Street.
