Lord and Lady Carnarvon invite you to attend a Roaring Twenties Garden Party. Enjoy the glamour, sophistication and glitz of the era alongside the beautiful backdrop of Highclere Castle. We invite you to come dressed in attire from the 1920’s, the setting for the third series of Downton Abbey and famous for the flappers! Prizes will be given for best dressed in various categories including “best upstairs”, “best downstairs” and “best hat”.
Explore the magnificent State rooms of the Castle and imagine yourself on the set of Downton Abbey! Traditional tents will be setup on the lawns serving a light lunch freshly prepared in the Castle’s kitchens and a glass of Pimms.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you for a fun filled weekend!
Photography is not permitted within the Castle but there will be a roaming photographer to capture your portraits at various famous locations throughout the Castle and Gardens.
We are not able to cater for all dietary requirements but please notify us by email if you are vegetarian, vegan or gluten free.
Thank you to all those who have recently visited us. Please see our opening times page for information regarding upcoming public open days.
