Visitor number to Blenheim Palace down for 2006

The number of visitors to Blenheim Palace during 2006 dropped 7% compared to 2005 according to figured released by The Association of Leading Visitor Attractions last week.

Figures show that 374,821 visited Blenheim Palace during 2006.

The lower figures are believed to be partly down to wet weather throughout May and cancellation of a craft fair.
