Camping sites, touring caravan parks, campgrounds, trailer parks in Woodstock.
Lying on the banks of the River Glyme, Woodstock used to have a royal residence, Woodstock Manor, where Henry 1 kept a private zoo and Henry 11 secreted his mistress, Rosemont Clifford. Her sister, Mary, kept Princess Elizabeth prisoner here and the infamous King John was born here.
Although the house lay in ruins by the end of the English Civil War, it was transformed into a World Heritage Site called Blenheim Palace, birthplace in 1874 of war-time Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, and one of Britain’s top tourist attractions. The statesman is buried in the churchyard of St Martin’s Church at nearby Bladon.
The Palace was a gift from the nation to John Churchill, first Duke of Marlborough, after he defeated the French and Bavarians at the Battle of Blenheim on the Danube in 1704. It was designed by Sir John Vanburgh while its huge deer park was landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown.
The town of Woodstock was no more than a clearing in Wychwood Forest prior to the Norman Conquest but in more modern times became famous for leather glove-making. The 17th century Fletcher's House is home to the Oxfordshire County Museum while Geoffrey Chaucer – ‘the father of English literature’ – lived at Chaucer’s House. The Bear Hotel dates to the 13th century.
