Went to Highclere castle and a tour of the Downton Village. The meeting point was very easy to find and the guide was on time. The guide was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of information about the castle and village. He also had pictures to put things in context, which I really liked! I felt there was adequate time to look around, but could have spent all day there easily. The grounds and garden are stunning! My main tips would be that the tour guide offers people to go to the bathroom before you start the tour of the village because let’s face it after an hour plus ride from London and will have to go to the bathroom when you get there not after you tour the village! Also, some may need motion sickness meds.. it’s bumpy and some back roads. This is a really nice day!

We really enjoyed everything about the tour but especially hearing from Michael about how certain scenes were filmed and seeing photos of scenes from the show in the same location in the village. The village tour was grest! Loved being able to go inside the church. Michael was a great guide; he shared many details about the castle and the Caernarvon family history. The actual tour around the castle was wonderful and met all of our expectations. There were volunteers in several rooms who were able to answer questions and add insight into the art, furnishings, and other historical details. John was an excellent driver and we felt very safe with him driving. The Cafe and gift store were lively additions to the tour.

Seeing the castle and walking through it was amazing! Relaxing and at your own pace - did not feel rushed and was able to take in all of the information that was presented. Everyone was really friendly throughout the entire day. Don’t forget to walk the gardens…very scenic!

What a fantastic day! On a picture perfect day visit to Highclere Castle, this trip did not disappoint. The journey by coach was smooth and easy. Stewart was a great witty guide who pointed out things along the way and was very knowledgeable about Highclere and the Downton Abbey show. He showed the different filming locations and how the production used the Castle to bring the story to life. We explored the house and grounds and had time for drinks, just relaxing and taking it all in. It was an intimate small group and much fun,

Our Downton Abbey tour was a highlight of our trip. As an avid fan I can truly say this was worth every penny. We felt like we stepped right into the Downton world. Highclere Castle is stunning and the grounds immense and beautiful. Our tour guide, Stuart was informative and knew his history well. He kept us informed about what would happen during the day. We had plenty of time to tour the castle and enjoy the grounds. It was a great day!!
