Blenheim Palace has made every effort to ensure that visitors with disabilities can enjoy as much of the estate as possible. However, the Salon Privé event is held on the lawns and therefore we do strongly recommend that disabled visitors are accompanied by a companion to assist them. Please note that the Courtyards and Formal Gardens have gravel paths requiring extra care.

Assistance and support dogs are welcome at Blenheim Palace, as well as the South Lawn exhibition area of Salon Privé. However, we would like to advise that there is a prevalence of very loud engine noises at the event, which might cause dogs anxiety and stress.
