Highclere Castle – Home to Downton Abbey – Thursday 3rd September 2020
Date: Thursday 3rd September 2020
Price: £38 per person
Information: After six seasons of Downton Abbey, fans will immediately recognise the butter-hued building as the home of the Crawley family. Inside, the house looks identical to the hit period drama, except you sadly aren’t greeted by Carson upon arrival. And instead of photos of the likes of Mary and Sybil on the wall, you are more likely to see portraits of Highclere’s family, the Carnarvons.
The house was constructed in 1679 and has been the home of the Earls of Carnarvon and their forebears since the start.
Currently the eighth Earl of Carnarvon, George Herbert, and his family, live in part of the home.
Leaves from Bill’s Coach and Minibus Hire at 9.00am and leaves from Highclere Castle at 4.00pm.
