Highclere Castle - The real Downton Abbey
Berkshire, United Kingdom
Made famous worldwide by the television phenomenon, Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle is home to The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon.
Visit the familiar grounds and interior of Highclere Castle. In addition to being a family home the Castle boasts an Egyptian Exhibition in the cellars of the castle to celebrate the 5th Earl of Carnarvon's achievements. It was this Earl who famously discovered the Tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922 with Howard Carter and resided at Highclere a century ago. Explore the castle, gardens and woods and then perhaps the tearoom.
For an extra special occasion we can even arrange for private dinner parties and provide period costumes to transport you fully back to the roaring 20s.
