The Downton Abbey tour visits Highclere Castle and the village of ‘Downton’ where much of the popular TV series was filmed.
Early booking is essential as the location is very popular with Downton Abbey fans. You will see not only the house and gardens from the outside, but also the main reception room where the Granthams dine, some of the bedrooms and of course the magnificent Great hall. After Highclere we will visit the village of Bampton in Oxfordshire, which doubles as the set for Downton Village. See the church where Lady Mary and Matthew Crawley were married, the pubs, and the library used as the entrance to the hospital. We will also have a traditional English cream tea in the village, a tradition that has changed little since the time of the Crawleys.
