Accommodation in Woodstock for the Blenheim Triathlon June 2013

The Blenheim Triathon takes place over the weekend of 8th and 9th of June and is now the 2nd largest in the UK. Set in the stunning grounds of Blenheim Palace, this popular swim-bike-run event winds around the Blenheim Estate, although hopefully the competitors won't be doing much sightseeing!

The Diamond Jubilee in Oxford

Queen Elizabeth II has been on the throne for 60 years and this weekend the UK is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee and enjoying a long weekend*. This is the second Diamond Jubilee the UK has seen.
