Best time to visit Blenheim

Popularly known as one of the sunniest towns in New Zealand, the climate is usually very settled, mainly because of the rain shadow effect of the mountain ranges to the west which shelters Blenheim from the heaviest of rains.

February is generally the best summer weather and a lovely time to visit. Normally, summers are warm and dry while winters are cool and frosty with clear sunny days that follow. Blenheim also hosts some major events during this month, including the famous Marlborough Wine and Food Festival.
