  • Absolutely loved being here. The castle was amazing. Kept expecting 'Carson' to appear through the door. The gardens were lovely too.

  • My experience at Highclere Castle was incredible. Not only was the outside of the castle beautiful, but the interior as well!

  • The interior is just as it is in Downton Abbey and I loved it. I will certainly return when I next go to England from Australia.

  • Great venue for a wedding. Lovely gardens and amazing architecture.
