About Private Tour: 'Downton Abbey’ Film Locations Tour
Go back to the Edwardian era on this three-hour private tour of sites from the popular television period drama ‘Downton Abbey.’ This is an amazing opportunity for fans of the TV show to travel in style with a private driver to chauffeur you around – just like the Crawleys themselves! Visit major filming locations, including Highclere Castle (the real-life Downtown Abbey) and the village of Bampton (the real-life Downton village).
Head west of London for a day of Downton Abbey sightseeing! After pickup from your central London hotel in a spacious luxury vehicle, your private tour guided by a professional chauffeur will take you out to Highclere Castle, known to Downton Abbey fans as the home of the Earl of Grantham and his aristocratic family. Highclere is used for both exterior and interior filming for the show. If you think the castle is stunning on television, you’ll be absolutely amazed by its appearance in person as you admire its stately Jacobethan style and dramatic façade.
Next, continue following the Crawley family and their servants as you make the drive to Bampton, a village in Oxfordshire where many outdoor scenes of the fictional village of Downton were filmed. Admire the well-preserved village with its charming main street and historical buildings, some of which date to the 12th century.
Your day tour ends as you are returned to your London hotel.
Please note: Entrance fees to the grounds and gardens of Highclere Castle are included in the booking price, however, entrance fees into the castle and exhibition are not included due to limited availability.
