Highclere Castle

Welcome to our website. Please enjoy exploring what it is really like behind the scenes of "The Real Downton Abbey". Highclere is a beautiful Castle and landscape and one we delight in sharing with many thousands of visitors.

We are, at present, open to the public during the Easter break and do hope that the weather improves so that visitors are more able to enjoy the Gardens!

Please see the Downton notice box below for links to the show and to a little quiz and a prize to win a Valentine stay at London Lodge, here at Highclere.

Happy New Year.

The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon

Thank you to everyone who came along to this year's Easter Egg Hunt in support of Naomi House Children's Hospice.

Welcome to my blog, inviting you behind the scenes of my life and home and sharing anecdotes from my everyday life at Highclere Castle.

The much anticipated sixth series of Downton Abbey is now well into production. In the meantime, whilst you are waiting for it to appear on your screen, why not enter our prize draw for a chance to stay on the beautiful Highclere Estate.

Visit our Special Events page for more information about the only chance to visit the Castle in June. Our Special Drinks Reception will take place on Friday, 5th June 2015. Tickets to this event are now on sale.
