    Memorable and great staff, rooms and pub. You are missing out if you do not stay at the Duke!

    You hope when you travel abroad that your accommodations will be clean, reasonable, enjoyable and friendly. You don't always get all four in one location, but we did with the Duke of Marlborough. When we started planning our second trip to England for 2014, one of the few requirements that we had was that we would return to Oxford and that, without question, we would stay at the Duke of Marlborough. We discovered this gem by accident on the road and were taken in by the pictures of the pub, the rooms and the rate. We were not disappointed. Derek and the staff were incredibly friendly, willing to help us with our trip plans, and made us feel welcome. The food (and drink) was fantastic and the rooms great. I cannot recommend The Duke of Marlborough highly enough; it became our "local" while we were there, and I know that we will be returning whenever we are back in England.

    ... husband fell out of royal favor. Because of this, the funds to build Blenheim Palace stopped and the Marlboroughs left the country. After Queen Anne's death, they returned to England and the Duke decided to finish building Blenheim at his own expense. They had many problems during the construction, because craftsmen left due to lower pay and conflicts with the Duchess.

    We toured the palace and the grounds, it is very impressive and packed with tourists. Especially all those Chinese students we thought we left behind in Oxford have followed us here to take their selfies in front of the Palace. So we thought, why not, so here we ...

Although we only saw a small portion of the iconic buildings, those areas of the city were very beautiful and we hope to return soon for Ryan's graduation ...

    ... yet another impossibly pretty Cotswold village, where we had our first clotted cream tea for the trip and heard from a local that Australia beat the Lions - yay!
    Dinner booked at the Kingham Plough tonight - the chef used to work at Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck, so we're looking forward to a fabulicious meal.

    ... out of a truck, and tonight he parked in front of Christ Church College, which is directly across the street from Pembroke. Everyone swears he makes the greatest pizza in the world, and they were just about right. He made me a white pizza, with spinach, garlic, and lots of cheese. That’s another thing – everyone here has been super nice and understanding about my GERD. I was worried about it at first, because it is not a very well-known condition ...
