Highclere Castle – Home to Downton Abbey – Sunday 18th August 2019

Destination: Highclere Castle – Home to Downton Abbey

Date: Sunday 18th August 2019


Information: After six seasons of Downton Abbey, fans will recognise the butter-hued building as the home to the Crawley Family. Inside the house looks identical to the hit period drama, expect you sadly won’t be greeted by Carson as you arrive. Instead of photos of the likes of Mary and Sybil on the wall, you’ll more likely to see portraits of the Carnarvons. The house was constructed in 1679 and has been home of the Earls of Carnarvons and their forebears since the start.

Currently the eighth Earl of Carnarvon, George Herbert and this family live in part of Highclere Castle.

Leaves from Bill’s Coach and Minibus Hire at 09.30am and leaves from Highclere castle at 16.00pm.

Bill’s Coach and Minibus Hire address: 1 Hollin lane, Stacey Bushes, Milton Keynes, MK12 6HT
