New research has revealed that Blenheim Palace is the most Instagrammable stately home in the UK to visit this Christmas. A study by home cleaning and maintenance service company Fantastic Services analysed Instagram hashtag counts to establish which stately home in the UK provides the most Instagram potential – particularly for the festive season. The stately home with the highest number of hashtags is Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire with 676,000 combined hashtags. Christmas at Blenheim Palace looks set to provide plenty of Instagrammable photos with an after-dark illuminated trail with over a million lights and a Santa's Grotto.
Windsor Castle was revealed as the fourth most Instagrammable home in the UK with 393,000 hashtags to date. Windsor Castle will host a Royal Christmas with a pantomime exhibit as well as well as festive tours across the Castle to provide plenty of opportunity for social media sharing.
Commenting on the findings, a spokesperson from Fantastic Services said: "Stately homes are a staple of UK culture and tourism, and Christmas is the peak season for visits with beautiful grounds and homes providing excellent backdrops for social media photos.After last year where most Christmas events at stately homes were cancelled, this year both tourists and the British public are bound to return and share their Christmas memories online as they get into the festive spirit. The grandeur and enormity of many of these homes and gardens make them perfect locations for social media posts."
