All tickets for this event are now SOLD.

To celebrate the launch of the final television series, enjoy an exclusive Afternoon Tea & Tour of Highclere Castle, The Real Downton Abbey.

The final TV series of Downton Abbey will return to our screens in the UK this September and what could be more enticing than visiting the famous Castle where Downton Abbey was filmed to build the momentum.  Choose from Sunday 13th September or Sunday 20th September (1:30pm to 5pm) for an exclusive guided tour of the State Rooms and Castle Bedrooms. Our guides have exceptional knowledge of the building, artwork and furniture with plenty of anecdotes. 

See the location of where Matthew proposes to Mary, the beautiful staircase Lady Edith throws her veil and walk the gallery landing where the unfortunate Mr Pamuk got dragged back to his bedroom!

The tour will also include the Egyptian Exhibition, which tells the story and contains antiquities from the tombs that were discovered in Egypt by the 5th Earl of Carnarvon and Howard Carter.

Enjoy a glass of champagne with a delicious afternoon tea in the magnificent State Dining Room, which you will soon recognise as the room where the Grantham family dine.

The State Dining Room is a beautiful room decorated in pale yellow silks and contains works of art by Gainsborough and Van Dyck.


You are welcome to enjoy the Gardens and Gift Shop at your leisure.

Tickets strictly limited  -  £150 per person.
