Blenheim Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 71 photos

Blenheim is named after the Battle of Blenheim (1704), where troops led

by John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough defeated a combined French

and Bavarian force

BLENHEIM..............

Has the tital of 'ONE OF THE SUNNIEST TOWNS IN NEW ZEALAND!",

a title worth remembering perhaps if you have struck, cold & wet weather!

Hot, relatively dry summers and crisp winters.

Blenheim is situated in the Marlborough region of New Zealand on the

north east corner of the South Island. The area which surrounds the town

is well known as a centre of New Zealand's wine industry.

Blenheim's attractions include its wine industry, plenty of them to choose

from!....

The town is situated in a good position because nearby,

you can go swimming with dolphins in the Marlborough Sounds,

watching whales in Kaikoura, as well as scenic boat cruising, fishing,

water-skiing and kayaking. .
