  Blenheim Palace - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Blenheim Palace is a large and monumental country house situated in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England.
In 1874, Blenheim Palace was the birthplace of the 1st Duke's famous descendant, Winston Churchill, whose life and times are commemorated by a permanent exhibition in the suite of rooms in which he was born (marked "K" on the plan).
Blenheim Palace was designed with all its principal and secondary rooms on the piano nobile, thus there is no great staircase of state: anyone worthy of such state would have no cause to leave the piano nobile.
