A winter’s day at Blenheim Palace, under a clear and crisp December sky. The palace, dressed for the season showing off all its magnificence and its Christmas splendor. Grand Christmas trees at both the entry and in the main hallway.

Blenheim Palace is a stately home, visited by Kings, Queens and royalty over the centuries, provides a fitting backdrop for the majesty of the 3 Kings. Throughout the grand rooms, rich silks, decorations and treasures, tell the story of the 3 Magi. One of England’s most stunning palaces, built for The Duke of Marlborough, Sir John Churchill. Blenheim Palace is also famous for being the birth place of one of Britain’s greatest leaders, Sir Winston Churchill.

A captivated audience, doubtless remembering Christmases gone by where other young children sang the same beautiful verses  telling the Christmas story. We left Blenheim Palace with hearts warmed, reminding us of the true meaning of this time of year.
