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.

Loved this tour, great choice! Guide was wonderful, she knew her subject and kept us entertained on the ride from London showing photos of the TV series as well as some clips. Visiting the castle was perfect, made you feel like you were part of the family. Only down part was not allowing photos taken inside, horrible! The grounds are gorgeous, loved walking all over.

Comfortable, informative and just a great day out of London. Val had so much to offer, even my mom, who had never seen the Downton Abbey series, enjoyed the stories and scenery. The village and castle were delightful!

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Our guide, Lottie, was personable and informative, and it was great fun to be with other Downton fans. The day had a nice balance of structured and free time. Highly recommended!

Well described tour and a great driver and tour coordinator. The clips of shows made the entire riding experience enjoyable and caught us up on filming locations.
