I want to say now that I find it very frustrating to visit places that don’t allow photos. I mean really, what’s with that? I never use a flash and I don’t get in the way of other people so what is the problem? Sometimes I think it is just a ploy to sell postcards, sometimes it MAY be a security issue, but most often I think it’s just something to drive me a little bit crazy. Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, is one of those places that doesn’t allow any photos inside. The palace was thoroughly enjoyable, even without access to my camera. The scheduled tour was worthwhile and the grand scale of the property was impressive. The following are a few of the shots I took OUTSIDE.
