Woodstock is about 80 miles and 1.5 hours drive from Camberley.
Arrive at pub : Sturdy's Castle, Tackley, near Woodstock for coffee - then car share to drive 5 miles or so to Blenheim Palace. www.blenheimpalace.com
The web site for the palace suggests the following:
" Take a tour of Blenheim Palace, then visit the Indoor Cinema and ‘Churchill’s Destiny’ Exhibition in the Stables Courtyard. Stop for lunch in the Water Terrace cafe then visit the Formal Gardens. Catch the Miniature Train to the Pleasure Gardens including the giant Marlborough Maze, Butterfly House, ‘Blenheim Bygones’ Exhibition, the Lavender Garden and Adventure Play Area"
This should take 4 -5 hours and entry is £22.00
Then back to the pub for shower/change ready for leisurely dinner (they have a 2 for 1 deal) and overnight stay.
After breakfast on Sunday, weather dependant, we can do a very gentle stroll along the canal, visit a small stately home/garden which is close by or back to Blenheim (ticket covers weekend) if not seen everything the day before, or stroll round the town of Woodstock - the choice is yours. Then back to the pub for Sunday lunch (also 2 for 1 deal).
You can leave either after breakfast, after the walk, or after lunch - whichever you prefer.
You can, of course, just come for the day to visit Blenheim Palace and not stay over.
