Now a much loved home on both TV and the silver screen, Highclere Castle, or as many of you know it ‘Downton Abbey’ has a rich, multi-faceted heritage. Explore ‘behind the scenes’ and discover the real history of this Jacobethan style country house or perhaps unwind in the beautiful gardens set within the 5000-acre estate.
The Egyptian Exhibition
The Castle was the seat, 100 years ago, of the 5th Earl of Carnarvon, who famously discovered the Tomb of the Egyptian Boy Pharaoh, Tutankhamun, in 1922 with his archaeological colleague, Howard Carter.
Today, the 8th Earl and Countess have opened a new Egyptian Exhibition throughout the cellars of the Castle to celebrate the 5th Earl’s achievements.
Ticket includes entrance to Highclere Castle, the gardens and The Egyptian Exhibition.
