What to expect

Become Lord or Lady Grantham for the day, as you visit the film locations used for the BAFTA-winning period drama on a small-group tour of Downton Abbey locations. Get cozy with no more than 15 people traveling by mini-coach as well as your own guide plus driver. This is the best option for a Downton Abbey fan.

The day will start from central London, then head for the charming Oxfordshire village that has been featured as Downton Village. Here, you will get a guided tour of locations such as Downton hospital, the village pub, the former home of Matthew Crawley and the local church.

Get fascinating anecdotes about how the global hit TV series was made, about the actors involved and about the wonderful history of the places you visit on the tour.

You'll take a short comfort break there before heading to Highclere Castle, which is used as the main Downton Abbey set. On the way, you'll learn about the 1000-year history of Highclere Castle and life ‘above and below stairs’.

Food for lunch can be purchased at Highclere Castle or you can bring your own lunch and enjoy it in the beautiful grounds. You’ll be able to explore independently the ‘Above Stairs’ area inside Downton Abbey with the aid of a self-guided information sheet.

As you wander around the estate, you'll be able to imagine life as it was over 100 years ago and enter the world of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants.
