It has been nearly four years since Downton Abbey’s final television episode aired, capturing over 180 million of us, but while it left our screens, it never left our hearts.  

The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon were delighted to welcome back old friends Hugh Bonneville, Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, Elizabeth McGovern, Jim Carter and Phyllis Logan to tread the Castle boards once more to create Downton Abbey: The Movie, which debuted in the UK on 13th September and in the US on 20th September.

Now you have watched the series and seen the movie, visit us here at Highclere Castle and relive every scene: glide down the grand oak staircase like Lady Mary did on her wedding day, sit at Jackdaws Castle where Lady Edith so often found herself and take in the state dining room where many of the Dowager Countess' wonderfully acerbic lines were delivered by Dame Maggie Smith.  

We have general admission days, guided tour days and some very special events throughout 2019 and 2020.  Book now.
