For almost 50 years, long before the Downton Abbey had even been conceived, we had been touring Highclere Castle and the beautiful Cotswold landscape used in the TV series and subsequent film.
Highclere Castle is the actual country house and estate depicted as Downton Abbey. This magnificent , aristocratic family residence has always been renown for her elegance, the parkland for its splendour and the Cotswolds countryside for its breathtaking beauty.
A longstanding friend of the Carnarvon family, Julian Fellowes, the genius behind the drama, 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 third! The series has become a phenomenon with appreciative viewers all around the world.
Please join us for a simply wonderful day.
