THE gardens at Blenheim Palace have reopened today.

While the gardens and car parks have reopened, the palace itself remains closed.

Ticket checks have been reintroduced around the park, and pre-booking is deemed essential, including for annual pass holders.

The palace asks visitors to respect local communities, colleagues and each other, and only travel if you live locally.

Visitors must arrive on time and follow all Government regulations with regards to Covid-19.
