The mansion in this live stream is the family estate of the Dukes of Marlborough, which was a gift from Queen Anne to the 1st Duke of Marlborough for his victory at the Battle of Blenheim in 1704. As the main residence of the Dukes of Marlborough, this palace is the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, grandson of the 7th Duke.
Visitors to this UNESCO World Heritage Site can see Churchill's permanent exhibition and other extraordinary collections in magnificent halls. Outside, there are lovely gardens for walk you also see in the webcam and a large lake with Vanbrugh's Bridge.
The majestic palace and park complex, where there is an online broadcast from, was built for almost 100 years by several architects. As a result, a grandiose palace with a Victory Column and a triumphal arch appeared here. A little later, the palace was surrounded by a magnificent landscape park created by Lancelot Brown.
Blenheim Castle, perfectly visible from different angles in the live camera, is a rare example of Baroque in England. The monumental building is decorated with a massive entrance portico and galleries with columns. There are figured towers, stone lions, a marble hall with a huge medallion, gilded state rooms, and a collection of family portraits, tapestries and furniture.
Around the palace, where the webcam is directed to, there are the famous English gardens - "Water Terraces" and "Rose Garden". In the Churchill memorial garden there is "Temple of Diana" pavilion, where the great politician made a proposal to his future wife.
The park with a large lake, cascades, fountains, giant labyrinth and butterfly pavilion is also of great interest.
An icurious fact: on the bank of the lake there was filmed an episode about the early years of Severus Snape from the movie "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix".
Nowadays, the descendants of the ancient Marlborough family still live in Blenheim Palace, occupying the east wing of the building.
