As with Royal Palaces and other Great Houses, Highclere closed on March 23rd. We are now, however, very much looking forward welcoming guests who have booked tickets for our Mid-Summer Guided Tours on the 7th & 9th of July and the start of our Public Opening Summer Season starting the 12th July. Please do see our Summer welcome information.
Many thanks to all of you who have transferred your tickets to a future date or accepted vouchers on your Highclere Castle account. We are very grateful for your support and look forward to seeing you in the future. The health of all our staff and visitors is very important to us and Highclere's team is beginning to return to prepare the Castle for visitors.
We will continue to update our website and social media as per government advice.
During the autumn we will have a series of tours and events every weekend and through the week which we are continually adding to. Please see here for further information.
We wish you well,
The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon

We have long been obsessed with tea - which tea to drink, when to add milk, or whether to add milk and of course proper afternoon tea. I do love my morning cup of tea thinking about the day ahead. ☕️ #highclerecastle #downtonabbey #Downton #afternoontea #tea Thanks to David Griffin for the beautiful photograph.
