Standing With Giants at Blenheim Palace

5 November - 22 November

standing with giants, blenheim palace

200 life-size Armistice Day soldier silhouette figures and 75 poppy wreaths are currently on display by the Column of Victory at Blenheim Palace.   I visited the other day and it was both moving and stunning.  The grounds of Blenheim Palace are wonderful to explore at this time of year too with all the Autumn colours and the playpark at the Pleasure Gardens currently remains open.



The installation is the work of Witney-based artist Dan Barton and are made from recycled building materials. The art installation is in memory of The Unknown Soldier for The Royal British Legion, paying respects to our fallen heroes this Remembrance Day.

The Royal British Legion deliver vital care and services every da  in support of serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families. They help to ensure the highest quality of care for those sufferin  physical and mental health issues and help families that need time to reconnect.

Free to view with a Park & Gardens ticket or a valid Annual Pass, and a pre-booked time slot.
