Your favorite castle - all yours - for the whole day!
Visit the most visited castle in Britain - Highclere Castle, - more known to us all as Downton Abbey.
This place is so popular, that needs no introduction!
However, apart from the magnificent and lavish castle, you get to also visit the Egyptian exhibition of Lord Carnavron, - yes, - the one who discovered the tomb of King Tutankhamen in 1922. Amazing exhibits tell you an incredible story that lead to this significant discovery.
And don't forget beautiful gardens in tranquil suroundings. . .
10 marks out of 10! - a splendid day out in the countryside.
On the days when the castle is closed, we can visit Bampton - a village where the series were filmed. This would be a great alternative choice for Downton Abbey funs.
