We were delighted to be able to celebrate in September with our special “The Magic of the Movies” weekend, with wonderful Castle tours, a costume exhibition, jazz band and vintage cars. Thank you to all those who channelled their inner Downton, dressing as their favourite Downton characters, and to those who took part in a Highclere scene written by Lady Carnarvon.
Apart from guided tours throughout the autumn, Highclere Castle Festival will take place on October 9th and 10th we will annouce the speakers soon and hope to release some more tickets.
We very much hope you enjoyed “Christmas at Highclere” on Channel 4, and felt that some team Highclere contributed some memorable lines rather in the vogue of Downton Abbey. We will welcome Christmas events from late November until December 21st and we end with a wonderful performance of a Christmas Carol by Gerald Dickens. We have posted our Wintertime and Springtime tours already for those who wish to book ahead.
If you have booked tickets and would like to reserve a manual wheelchair, please do email [email protected]. Pushchairs for babies and toddlers are most useful for the gardens and may be left at the entrance hall whilst you tour the Castle at which point, we would ask you to carry or hold fast to small childrens' hands! Again this year, neither dogs nor picnics are permitted in the gardens (guide dogs excepted). For any futher useful information please click here
We hope you will find many different tours to tempt you, and we very much look forward to seeing you. Tickets for all of the above can be found on our ticketing website and, again, we ask that you book in advance of your visit.
With all Best Wishes,
The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon
