Blenheim Palace’s Great Court will be transformed once again into a spectacular Christmas market and it is set to be bigger than ever.

Taking place from 18th November to 18th December, visitors can expect traditional wooden chalets which will showcase a range of festive treats for designer-makers and food and drink producers, this year’s market will be the biggest ever, with up to 80 stall holders.

Taking place in the beautiful backdrop of the Oxfordshire Palance, the festive market is the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit as you enjoy the yuletide atmosphere.

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 with tipples including honey whiskey, flavoured and traditional rums and gin, craft vodkas and much more.

This year 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.

Entry to the Christmas Market is free and access is also included with tickets to the indoor and outdoor trails. A combination 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.
