Long Description:

The ancestral home to the Dukes of Marlborough since its completion in 1722 this enormous estate carries the mark of each succeeding generation. When completed the estate had a kitchen garden (the Walled Garden) which is now called the Pleasure Gardens. It contains a cafe, an adventure playground for the kids, a Butterfly House and the Marlborough Maze, second largest in England, .

The Blenheim Palace website says:
"The Marlborough Maze is the world's second largest symbolic hedge maze, designed to reflect the history and architecture of the Palace. The maze covers an area of just over an acre (0.4 hectare) and has two high wooden bridges which provide perfect vantage points."

Please note that these gardens are on a private estate and to visit them you will be required to pay an admission fee. You can also choose to walk a public footpath through the estate, see the geocache "Blenheim Palace (get in free!!!)" http://coord.info/GCG337 for more details.
