Itinerary

Description

Revisit the familiar halls and family drama of Downton Abbey with an exclusive visit to the impressive home and magnificent grounds of Highclere Castle. On this impressive two-day break we peek behind the scenes at where all the unforgettable moments from the beloved TV programme happened and take the opportunity to discover Highclere’s wealth of treasures that have forged the castle’s historic legacy.

Coach Itinerary

Day 1: From a morning pickup in your local area we travel by coach to a place of interest, where you’ll have a chance to explore. Later we rejoin the coach and travel to our hotel for our relaxing overnight stay.

Day 2: Today we head to Highclere Castle by coach for our exclusive visit. We skip the queues and go behind the scenes where we explore the stunning filming locations and walk in the footsteps of all our favourite Downton Abbey characters. We also take in the castle’s spectacular Egyptian Exhibition which chronicles the 5th Earl of Carnarvon’s travels to Egypt and his role in the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, all documented in the Countess of Carnarvon’s new book, The Earl and the Pharaoh, which we all receive a copy of. After an inspiring day at Highclere, we rejoin the coach for the journey home.
