Downton Abbey Tours

“Wilson`s… the Downton Abbey experts”

For almost 50 years, long before the TV show had been conceived, we have been touring Highclere Castle and the beautiful Cotswold landscape used in the TV smash hit series, Downton Abbey.

Highclere Castle has always been known for its elegance, the parkland for its splendor and the Cotswolds for its breathtaking beauty.

Highclere Castle is the film location for the hugely successful Downton Abbey, which has been nominated for four Golden Globes. A longstanding friend of the Carnarvon family, Julian Fellowes, the author of the show, always had Highclere Castle in mind as he wrote Downton Abbey. He often commented he wanted a house which spectacularly testified to the confidence and soaring optimism of the Edwardian period.

The success of Downton Abbey took everyone by surprise from the first nervous apprehension whether anyone would like the first episode or stay with it for the second or even a third! The series has become a phenomenon with appreciative viewers all around the world.

We promise you an unforgettable Downton experience. You will travel in luxury with expert, private guides in our quest to witness some of the most unforgettable locations and scenes from the show.

Most importantly we guarantee entrance to the Castle when it is open to the public despite entrance tickets to Highclere advertised as sold out.

“Dear Oliver, On August 11, our family was treated to a wonderful day of sightseeing at Stonehenge, Salisbury, and Bath; led by Nicola and wonderful driving by Keith - so glad he was behind the wheel. Though our day was long, I can't remember when I was able to see so much with such knowledgeable and delightful guides. They really made the day, along with the stones, cathedrals, and baths, Roman, of course. Please give our kind regards to Nicola and Keith and thank them for us. They made our day truly a day to remember. If, no, when we come back to England, you will be the first person we contact to set up our tours. Sincerely, Bill and Heather Brice, and the Coffin family, Tania, Laura, and Matthew ” Read more testimonials
