What You Can Expect

Private Tour: 'Downton Abbey’ Film Locations Tour by Private Chauffeur

Private Tour: Downtown Abbey Film Locations Tour by Private Chauffeur

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

We had a terrific tour guide who gave us a lot of inside perspective on the area, Highclere Castle and the nearby village where filming takes place. It helped that the weather was fantastic but the tour was definitely a pleasure and I would recommend the tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

This was a great tour. Our driver was an excellent guide. We were very pleased to discover we got to go into the castle. The gardens there are beautiful. For lunch we had the opportunity to go to a pottery which was wonderful. There were more spectacular gardens there. Then we went on to Bampton. It was so nice to see the English countryside and quaint villages. Thanks for making our day a good one!
