Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"..."It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine...” 

(Frances Hodgson Burnett, "The Secret Garden")

The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon are openingtheir beautiful home for a limited number of dates in March 2018 where you can experience a unique and special guided tour of Highclere Castle.

Scenes from the film adaptation of the book, ‘The Secret Garden’ were filmed at Highclere. Thus inspired, we are delighted to welcome you to Highclere in March on one of two days. Leave the winter blues behind and come and explore not just Highclere Castle but also the gardens.

On arrival, you will be welcomed into the Saloon, which is at the heart of the Castle with a 50ft high glazed ceiling, a magnificent open fireplace and a gothic style minstrel gallery. Before you embark on your tour, our guides will tell you some of the history of Highclere and then guide you around the very familiar State Rooms from the much loved series “Downton Abbey”!
