After strolling the grounds a bit, we headed into the main house. The first part of the house takes you through the Winston Churchill exhibit. There are letters from young Winston to his parents...they sounded so formal but in typical teenage fashion, he asked his father for money for university expenses! Winston's grandparents were the 7th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and he very much loved Blenheim...spending as much time there as he could. It was by accident he was born at Blenheim as his parents were visiting his grandparents at the time of his birth and in typical Churchill fashion, he was impatient and arrived early.
