Long Description:

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

The Blenheim Palace website says:
In the Butterfly House, exotic tropical butterflies can be seen in free flight. The special hatchery contains the pupae of many of the species, bred on site - so at Blenheim, it's possible to study the full life-cycle. More exotic butterflies can be seen, depending on the season.

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!!!)" for more details.
