We are thrilled to announce that Blenheim Palace is a new Hall of Names retailer. Visitors can now leave with a coat of arms and surname history as a fantastic souvenir of their visit!


Blenheim Palace is a truly stunning historic location and World Heritage Site in Oxfordshire. As the principal residence of the Dukes of Marlborough, it is the only non-royal country house in England to hold the title of palace. Notably, Blenheim Palace is famous as the birthplace and ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill (read some of his famous quotes here).


It is an absolutely great day out for all the family! Hall of Names has a proud tradition of working with some of the most historically important attractions across the UK. Therefore, we were delighted to forge this perfect partnership, and look forward to many successful years ahead. More than 900,000 visitors flock to this beautiful location every year. We are pleased to offer those visitors a little bit of their own history to take home as a souvenir. In fact, our coat of arms and surname history prints have quickly become best-sellers!


Events at Blenheim Palace


Throughout the year, there are events to suit all interests. For example, until February 9th, you can take part in a restoration and conservation tour. This gives you the chance to see ‘behind the scenes’ at Blenheim Palace, as the team undertakes its annual deep-clean of the palace’s many treasures. A great chance to see the specialist team in action, plus you will learn how to meticulously clean those special items!


From 15th February to 13th April, there is a fascinating insight into 1920’s life at Blenheim Palace. ‘Let’s Misbehave’ will give you a glimpse into the heady world of the upper classes in a time of great social, artistic and political change. Expect costumed characters and entertainment, and vintage cars. Plus, take yourself back in time with a themed afternoon tea in the Orangery Restaurant, music, dancing and more.
