It is currently home to the 12th Duke of Marlborough and has over 300 years of history to discover and more than 2000 acres of landscaped parkland and gardens to explore. Their Education Team is brimming with knowledge and facts about the Palace and its history, and encourage students (and teachers!) to ask lots of questions and get involved.
