Downton Abbey and Oxford

Visit the setting of the hit TV show Downton Abbey
at the majestic Highclere Castle”

Not only is Highclere Castle one of Britain’s most impressive inhabited castles but it is also the setting of the hugely popular Downton Abbey. With your included entry ticket you can explore the luxurious interiors and exquisite gardens of the grounds where the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants’ lives unfold to over nine million viewers each week.

On day one, we visit historic Oxford, famed for its beautiful architecture and prestigious university, where you will have time at leisure for sightseeing, shopping and relaxation.

We also include a visit to Bampton. This pretty village might be familiar to you as it doubles as the fictional town of Downton. Highlights include Churchgate House (the Crawley family home), Downton hospital and the church used for St Michael and All Angels.
