Restoration & Conservation Tours
Every year during January and February the Palace undergoes a deep clean. Visitors will have the exciting opportunity to learn all about this process that has historically occurred whilst we are closed to visitors.
Our conservation and restoration tours, led by our knowledgeable guides, are an exciting opportunity to gain a closer insight into how we care for the priceless collections housed within the Palace.
We are currently engaged in a program of deep cleaning and conservation in order to maintain the palace and its collections as part of our commitment as custodians of this World Heritage site. Every year, over a six-week period, every part of the Blenheim Palace collection is meticulously cleaned and maintained using a range of methods, both modern and traditional, and equipment. They are then placed back in situ for our guests to admire. You will be able to see our team in action as the Palace remains open through the winter.
We hope you enjoy exploring the State Rooms and seeing how we care for our treasures.
