A new Lights, Camera, Action trail will give visitors the chance to follow in the footsteps of Hollywood A-Listers at Blenheim Palace.
The Oxfordshire UNESCO World Heritage Site has been used as a filming location for movies and television for many years now and the new experience brings the movie palace to life.
Visitors will be able to travel around the palace and estate, scan QR codes and go on location of some of the most famous blockbusters in cinematic history, from the spellbinding Harry Potter to the iconic James Bond.
The QR codes contain fun facts like how Billy Connolly saved a lucky couple’s wedding day when filming for Gulliver’s Travels in 2010.
The Baroque palace has previously been used as a setting for the Cinderella story. Back in 2015, Kenneth Branagh used the estate formal gardens and iconic Grand Bridge in scenes for his film which starred Lily James, Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham-Carter.
As well as Cinderella, Blenheim has had a starring role in a host of other movie blockbusters – from Harry Potter and The BFG to James Bond, Gulliver’s Travels and Mission Impossible.
More recently, the Palace stood in for Buckingham Palace in ‘Dolittle’ (2020) starring Robert Downey Jr and Emma Thompson.
Access to the trail is included with an Annual Pass, Palace, Park & Gardens ticket whilst visitors can also convert their tickets into annual passes at no extra cost.
