Become Lord or Lady Grantham for the day, as you visit the film locations used for the BAFTA-winning period drama on a Downton Abbey Tour of Locations.

On this small group day tour you will start by departing from central London, then heading 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.

A short comfort break will be taken here.  Having explored the village, you will then travel to Highclere Castle, which is used as the main Downton Abbey set.  On the way, you will learn about the 1000 year history of Highclere Castle and life ‘above and below stairs’. Admission to the castle is included in the price.

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 our self-guided information sheet.

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

Our guide and driver, Caroline and Ray, were fantastic! It was my dream to visit Highclere Castle and tour the areas that Downton Abbey were filmed. The tour was very enjoyable and Caroline's enthusiasm and knowledge were the highlight of the tour. The tour was the perfect length, and the locations were great. I would highly recommend this tour, and if you are lucky to have Caroline and Ray as your guide/driver, you will not be disappointed!

This was a small group tour with a dynamic and very personable tour guide, Eva. Eva was very knowledgeable about the Downtown Abbey series and Highclere's history, owners, etc. One of the best tours we have taken. Thank you
