Why choose the Downton Abbey Film Locations tour

Highclere Castle was built in. The 19th century Victorian structure is the residential home of the Carnarvon family. Built on an ancient site, the original house was recorded in the Domesday Book. Lord Carnarvon, the 5th Earl and his team discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings in 1922, since then it has become the home to a number of Egyptian artifacts.

Highclere Castle is the film location of Downton Abbey and home to the imaginary Crawley family. The drawing room, library and the state dining room regularly appear in the series.

After your tour of the castle, stop and have lunch at a countryside pub before heading to the Oxfordshire village of Bampton, known as “Downton Village”. St Mary’s Church features in Downton Abbey where Lady Edith was left jilted at the altar, also Matthew marries Mary at the church. The village appears in many exterior shots, especially when the servants pop to the village.
