Oxford and Highclere Castle: The Real Downton Abbey Tour

Oxford
Oxford, the city of dreaming spires, boasts one of the world’s greatest - and oldest - universities, as well as some of the finest architecture in Europe. The colleges themselves, which make up the university, are amongst the architectural highlights, their ivy-clad stone walls protecting beautiful chapels, halls and libraries. We enjoy a unique tour which journeys through the heart of this ancient building before allowing free time to explore on your own and buy souvenirs.

Next we head to Bampton the setting of various village scenes from the Downton Abbey series. Visit the Church, Mathew Crawley's mother's house, the hospital and more. The village itself is quintessentially British and one of Britain's hidden treasures.

In the afternoon we head for Highclere Castle where large parts of Downton Abbey were also filmed.

Built by Sir Charles Berry who also built the houses of Parliament, this is the countryseat of the Earls of Carnarvon. The tour of the Castle’s public rooms includes the magnificent public main hall, the library and sitting rooms in addition to other rooms featured in Downton Abbey.

Why not spend some time enjoying the enjoying the parklands created by Lancelot
“Capability” Brown who also designed the grounds of Blenheim Palace or indulge yourself with tea and cake at one of the tea rooms once you have finished touring the Castle.

Departing Highclere Castle we head back to London and arrive back at approximately 6.30pm.
