The main objective was of course HighClere Castle, but it was the last and short part of the tour. I enjoyed the trip, but an hour or two shorter might have been a bit less tiring.

Frank our tour guide was brilliant and knew everything about the places we were visiting as well as Downton. Well organised and we managed to cram a lot of sightseeing into one day worst feeling rushed. Fabulous day out.

The Downton Abbey village and Highclere Castle. I would have loved to spend more time at the castle and gardens. Our guide Carol and our driver Nuno were wonderful!

Outside Mrs Crawleys House in Bampton village

The weather on the Sunday we visited Bampton, Oxfordshire, was perfect for a stroll down the main street. Bampton, a quaint little village, provided most of the backdrop in the Downton village.

What a nice surprise to find such pretty grounds and gardens at Highclere. Not sure why they don't show them on t.v.
