It’s common knowledge that London cabbies can often tell you more than the guidebooks. So, what better way to learn all about ‘Downton Abbey’? Hear secrets from the series and see the filming locations, too.
My daughter and I took the Private Douwnton Abbey tour three weeks ago. It was magical. From the beginning, when Andrew Wilcox picked us up at our hotel, The Bentley, until our return in the evening,
every minute was amazing. Andrew was wonderful, and made the whole experience fun, easy, and informative. I would encourage anyone who would like to visit the areas outside London and through the Cottswolds, to take this tour. It is not just about Downton Abbey, it is about the history of the many sites we visited. In other words, my husband would also have enjoyed it! Diana Deferville
Our driver and tour guide, Andrew made the day one to remember. Not only did we see Highclere, but several other little Cotswold villages where scenes were shot for Downton Abbey. We enjoyed lunch in a lovely little pub along the way. Andrew has a vast knowledge of the TV show and even does a twenty five question quiz at the end of the trip. Most enjoyable day.
My wife and I had an exceptional tour of Highclere castle. Our driver was personable and very informative pointing out places of interest along the way to the castle. After our tour we want to a lovely pub, Highway Inn, in a nearby village and had a delicious lunch with a superb atmosphere. After lunch we drove to the village of Downtown Abbey and our driver had a small DVD player and played scenes from the show that detailed exactly where we were standing. It was a very enjoyable day and I highly recommend booking through Viator.
EXCELLENT NO other words. Our tour guide Anthony was excellent, well prepared, courteous and the sights we saw blew our minds. It was an unforgettable day and we are so grateful we signed on.
This tour was fantastic. Our driver, Mick, was so knowledgeable and enjoyable. We had a fantastic time. Highclere Castle is more gorgeous on the inside than anyone can ever imagine. It's so delicate and exquisite! It was incredible to be there!!
Andrew Wilcox was a wealth of information, a great guy and a fabulous driver. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with him!!!
Steve Cahill was wonderful, friendly, knowledgable and flexible. He made it a great day! Vanessa
Excellent tour! Our tour guide Steve was knowledgeable, humorous, and very very personable. He got to know us and we him and we had a great 9 hours together. He took us to all the sites we wanted to see and gave us inside stories wherever he went. His black cab was immaculately clean and roomy. He left us with great memories on the last day of our British Isles vacation. We loved it. Thank you Steve!
wonderful day out ! Steve our guide was determined to give us the best experience possible and did so magnificently ! not only was he informative and amusing but he also knew when to leave us to quietly take in all we were seeing we could not go to Downton as hoped but went to the village and then to Blenheim , weather was perfect and I highly recommend using Black Cab and Viator
We love Downton Abbey and we loved this tour. Our family of three generations enjoyed this wonderful trip to Highclere Castle, Brampton town and the drive to these locations. Though we are groupies of the show we all agreed the town of Brampton would is a quainte town to visit. So picturesque. Upon arriving at Highclere we were filled with excitement seeing the abbey in full view. Richard our driver and guide was excellent. The local tour operator did not disappoint! The self guided tour in the abbey was great seeing all the rooms and walking where Lord Granthum, Granny, Mary, Coea etc walked was so fun! We highly recommend it if you are Downton fans!
