The Diary: The Long Summer Lunch at Blenheim Palace

Last Friday, a glittering host of guests headed to the Oxfordshire countryside for a long summer lunch in collaboration with Bicester Village...

As the August sun shone over the Italian Gardens at Blenheim Palace on Friday, a selected group of VIP guests were treated to a private luncheon hosted by Gentleman’s Journal and Bicester Village.

To kick off the Wilderness Festival weekend, guests enjoyed an indulgent shopping experience and bespoke treatments by Tom Ford Beauty at Bicester Village, before being chauffeured by BMW to Blenheim Palace, where they were wined and dined. In the breathtaking verdant surroundings of one of the world’s most iconic palaces, guests enjoyed Veuve Clicquot Brut and Rose Champagnes and AIX Rosé wine accompanied by butterflied leg of lamb, skewers of chicken and chorizo with lemon salsa and a variety of sumptuous salads followed by a glorious dessert table served in the neighbouring orangery.
