Your coach departs from outside of the Cumberland Hotel in Marble Arch. Please ensure you arrive at the departure point at least 10 minutes before the coach is due to leave.
During the journey, your guide regales you with stories and gossip relating to the hit British period drama, 'Downtown Abbey,' and details the various uses of Highclere Castle throughout history.
On arrival at the grand residence, you’ll begin your tour by exploring the beautiful castle grounds, which play host to the Monk’s Garden, the Wood of Goodwill, and the White Border. Then, head inside the castle to admire the opulent décor of the State Rooms: the dining room, smoking room, music room, and drawing room are all covered.
Your guide points out rooms used to film episodes of 'Downtown Abbey,' and refers to precise scenes during which drama unfolded. Before returning to London, you’ll have time to enjoy lunch or afternoon tea (own expense).
The tour concludes with drop-off at Victoria Coach Station.
