Even though this Blenheim Palace is very famous in the UK, the palace is still more bellowed by locals more than tourists. So, I was literally the only visitor. Just imagine visiting this palace on your own. Magic!

This palace is a monumental country house in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, and the principal residence of the Dukes of Marlborough. It was built between 1705 and 1722 and designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.

From Wiki:

The palace is named for the 1704 Battle of Blenheim, and was initially intended to be a reward to John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough for his military triumphs against the French and Bavarians in the War of the Spanish Succession, culminating in the Battle of Blenheim. 

The palace is notable as the birthplace and ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill.

Following the palace’s completion, it became the home of the Churchill (later Spencer-Churchill) family for the next 300 years.
