Highclere Castle is best known as the ‘real-life’ Downton Abbey, as it was where the name-sake series was filmed. Experience firsthand the glamour of British aristocracy with Champagne on arrival followed tea, coffee and homemade biscuits in the iconic Saloon. On this behind-the-scenes tour you’ll intimately get to know the home's fictional inhabitants - the Crawley family and their servants. Whilst the Crawley family is fictional, Lord and Lady Carnavon are real-life nobility that actually reside at Highclere Castle. The home is steeped in history, most notably the 5th Earl of Carnavon famously discovered the Tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922. Today the 8th Earl and Countess have opened the Egyption Exhibition in the cellars of the castle, which you are at liberty to explore. Thereafter meander through the castle’s drawing room, dining room, library and bedrooms - where many of the Downton Abbey scenes were filmed. Channel your inner Dowager Countess, and sashay into the State Dining Room for a private dining experience. With exclusive use of this magnificent room, you’ll be served a formal three course meal with house wine, followed by coffee and petit fours to sate your appetite. This is your opportunity to satisfy your Downton craving by getting lost in one of England’s most beautiful estates.
