Stop At: Highclere Castle

This is your opportunity to visit the real Downton Abbey, where the hit TV series and movies were filmed. Enjoy a leisurely visit to the magnificent Highclere Castle, home to the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon. Go behind the scenes and you will recognise many of the rooms used for filming the drama. During this unaccompanied visit of the Castle, you will also have time to see the highly acclaimed Egyptian Exhibition. Relive the moment when, in November 1922, Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings. Enjoy lunch in one of the Castle’s several tea rooms or café, and maybe sample one of their famous cocktails or even a glass of champagne. Later, explore the Castle’s delightful gardens, woodland walks and flower meadow. Take photos to your heart's content in this beautiful setting as you retrace the familiar steps of Lord Grantham and members of his family.

Duration: 4 hour

Stop At: Lacock

The day continues onto the beautiful and timeless Cotswolds village of Lacock, which dates back to the 13th century and where cars are the only sign of modern-day life. Little wonder it has been used as a backdrop to countless films and TV dramas including Downton Abbey, Harry Potter and several BBC productions such as Pride and Prejudice. The ancient Abbey in the heart of the village boasts a fascinating history and a charming museum that celebrates the invention of photography here in 1839 by William Henry Fox Talbot.
