The most Instagrammable stately home

NEW research has revealed that Blenheim Palace is the most Instagrammable stately home in the UK.

A study by home cleaning and maintenance service company 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 is bound to provide plenty of Instagrammable photos with an after-dark illuminated trail with over a million lights and a Santa’s Grotto.

Derbyshire’s famous Chatsworth House ranked as the second most Instagrammable stately home in the UK with a hashtag count of 501,000. Christmas at Chatsworth returns from November 6th to January 9th after being cancelled last year due to the pandemic. Guests can expect to snap photos of a Winter Wonderland courtyard, the new decorations within the House itself and Chatsworth’s very own Christmas market.

Kensington Palace in London had the third highest number of hashtags at 410,000. The residence that is home to many Royals including Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent have gardens that are open to the public throughout the year. In the past, visitors to Kensington Palace at Christmas have enjoyed carol singers, mulled wine in the courtyard and the traditional 30ft Christmas tree on display.

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.
