These tubs of burning oil arranged in three dimensional structures could be glimpsed at the start of the tour, but near the end one passed much closer to them. See also SP4416 : Blenheim Illuminations - (18) - Reflected flaming torches where they are reflected in the water of the ponds.

Due to the current Covid crisis very few public events have been allowed to take place. However, as the illuminations at Blenheim Palace are entirely in the open air, and careful distancing was being adhered to, this was one of the few exceptions. Well worth a visit, though by no means inexpensive (over 20/head) it made a very pleasant diversion in these appallingly glum times. A full circuit without dawdling (as it was bloomin' cold) took about 1h 15m and there was plenty to see.
