OUT & ABOUT
The Churchill Court Hotel has countless activities on its doorstep including the infamous Blenheim Palace, resting place of Sir Winston Churchill, only 1.5 miles away. Blenheim Palace opens its doors to many events throughout the year and so it's worth checking out their site to see if something takes your fancy.
If that isn't your thing there are plenty of other things to do and see in and around Oxfordshire. It's a 10 minute train ride away from Oxford City Centre which oozes in history and architecture. If eating and drinking is more your thing, or shopping, check out the newly renovated Westgate shopping centre, Witney or Bicester Village.
Some of the other gems that Oxfordshire has to offer include Burford and Minster Lovell.
Only 1.5 miles from the Hotel, is the rear entrance to Blenheim Palace; you can also visit Churchill’s grave just up the lane opposite. Visit the Blenheim Estate site to see a list of the many events held here throughout the year. Lunch at The Orangery is highly recommended. You can be assured of a great day out for all the family.
Tickets to Blenheim are available from Hotel Reception.
Oxford City Centre is only 10 minutes on the train or via park and ride. Bursting with history and architecture there are plenty of things to do and see including the many colleges. Oxford is the birthplace of Alice in Wonderland and the location to a few famous film and tv sites including Harry Potter and Downton Abbey. If museums are more your thing check out the Museum of Natural History, The Ashmolean or the Pitt Rivers. There are a variety of shows on at the Oxford Playhouse and New The Theatre that are worth getting tickets for.
If it's little ones you're trying to entertain the likes of the living museum that is Cogges Farm in Witney is ideal but equally Cotswold Wildlife Park is home to over 260 different species of animals and makes for a great day out. For the inevitable rainy days Crocodiles of the World is a 20 minute drive away and offers an indoor alternative.
