At Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials, we aim to provide an accessible environment for all visitors, including the elderly, those with young children or people with disabilities.
Where possible, we are happy to make special arrangements and assist with any requirements, but these must be made in advance of the event. There is a disabled car park which is the closest car park to the entrance and will have plenty of parking available. Please show your blue badge on arrival at the event and you will be directed to the disabled car parking at the front. Mobility scooters can be booked in advance and the pick-up location will be in the disabled car park.
You can now book mobility scooters in advance here.
BPIHT is pleased to operate a scheme to provide one complimentary entry ticket for any adult unable to attend unaided. The carer will be given a complimentary ticket by the Box Office (located at each gate). Please purchase an entry ticket for yourself as normal but please do not purchase a ticket for the carer. Visit the Box Office at the entrance to the event on arrival with the supporting documentation.
Free Carer/Personal Assistant tickets are issued free of charge at the Box Office located by each of the entrances. The following supporting documentation is required. This is mandatory in order for the free Carer/PA ticket to be issued.
Please bring evidence of at least one of the following (photo copies, scanned copies or pictures on your phone are fine);
- Middle or Higher Rate DLA for care and/or mobility
- Receipt of personal independence payment (PIP)
- Evidence of being severely sight impaired
- Recognised assistance dog ID card
If you require a free Carer/PA ticket in order to attend BPIHT please purchase a standard ticket at the relevant price in advance. Please make your way to the event and come to the Box Office adjacent to the entrance where your Carer/PA ticket will be issued and you will have fast track entry.
This facility is designed to allow any adult that is unable to otherwise attend BPIHT to have free entry for their Carer or Personal Assistant. We are afraid the carer scheme does not extend to children as they must be accompanied by an adult to attend BPIHT. Premium Enclosure Products are also excluded.
