    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.

    The morning started with breakfast in the dining room at the Duke of Marlborough...the choices were cereal and milk, toast, yogurt, croissants..or full English breakfast of egg, ham, sausage and baked beans with a fried tomato. Tough call for some, but I am on vacation in a foreign country and therefore have little time for grains, dairy products …

    ... construction was originally intended to be a gift to John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, from a grateful nation in return for the military triumph against the French and Bavarians at the Battle of Blenheim. However, it soon became the subject of political infighting, which led to Marlborough's exile, the fall from power of his duchess, and irreparable damage to the reputation of the architect Sir John Vanbrugh..The Churchills and ...

    ... were passed down to male heirs only, there was an inclination to have as many sons as possible so that the title was not lost. Although there have been special dispensations, women do not normally inherit a title, to this day!
    One of the things we love about Blenheim is that Capability Brown was the landscape architect. We almost always recognize his style and it is awesome. One of our tours was by "buggy" (weren't we surprised to be in ...

    ... a gift to John Churchill (yes, the Churchills) in return for the military triumph against the French and Bavarians at the Battle of Blenheim (hence the name). The 1st Duke gained a reputation as an extremely competent military commander during the Spanish wars of succession and he was rumored to be the closest friend and confidante to Queen Anne. When the Duke's wife began to quarrel with Queen Anne, the money allotted by Parliament for ...
