CYCLISTS can tour Blenheim Palace's picturesque parkland by bike next Sunday.

The Blenheim Palace Family Cycling day is the only time this year visitors will be able to visit the estate's grounds on two wheels and will be held on Sunday August 19.

Two routes will be available, one around Queen Pool and the other around the Park perimeter.

Visitors can finish off their day in the palace's Pleasure Gardens, which are specifically designed for all the family to relax and spend time together.

A Park & Gardens ticket is required, with entry £16 for adults and £7.40 for children.
