On Christmas Day, enjoy a traditional full English breakfast before getting ready for a five course festive lunch. For those who wish, Christmas cake will be served in the afternoon in our comfortable Churchill Lounge and a light informal dinner will be served in the evening. After breakfast on Boxing Day, enjoy a walk around the stunning Blenheim Palace Park or a drive through the picturesque Cotswolds before returning to the hotel for a buffet lunch or traditional afternoon tea.
