What to expect

On this day tour, you'll explore some of the Downton Abbey film locations featured in both London and the Oxfordshire countryside. London’s highlights include off-the-beaten track locations full of historical buildings and cobbled streets, as well as grand houses, clubs and restaurants with aristocratic and regal links. Leaving the hubbub of town, your afternoon will be spent visiting Downton Village, Yew Tree Farm and enjoying the picturesque Cotswold scenery and villages.

Travelling by mini coach, the tour will provide you with an insight into the making of the show and uncover stories behind some of the places that you'll visit on the tour.

Morning

Starting in central London, your tour will take you to the Inns of Court which have been popular sites for filming. You'll see the clinic Lady Edith visits when she discovers she is pregnant and the Russian Refugee church where Prince Kuragin is staying. You can follow in the footsteps of Mr Bricker and Cora when they go for a walk and spot the café where Tom spies Lady Rose out with the Jazz singer, Jack Ross. Other London sites include exteriors of the Liverpool Grand Hotel and Grantham House. After you have explored London Town, it is time to head out to the countryside. The first location that you visit is about 70 miles out of town and (depending on traffic) the journey lasts between 1.5-2 hours.

Lunchtime

Upon your arrival at the historic tenth-century farmstead which featured as Yew Tree Farm in series four and five, you can enjoy a complimentary Cotswold platter. Following lunch, you'll have a guided tour of this location which featured as the home of Mr Drewe, the struggling tenant who agrees to secretly help raise Lady Edith’s daughter.

Afternoon

From here, you'll set off to the heart of rural Oxfordshire where several villages have been used in the world of Downton Abbey. You'll see ‘Kirbymoorside’, where Anna’s bus splashes through the stream outside the pub where Bates worked when he left Downton Abbey. You’ll also get to pass the pub where Branson and Lady Sybil stay when they elope in series two.

Most notably, you'll visit Downton Village where you'll get a guided tour of the village and see familiar sites such as exteriors of Downton hospital, the village pub, the former home of Matthew Crawley and the local church, amongst others. Following this guided, tour you'll be able to explore the village for yourself.
