Castle Tour Information 2018/19

There are a few pre-booked summer tickets remaining as well as tickets for "Heroes at Highclere" on September 8 & 9. We are also delighted to welcome "walk up" visitors to buy tickets on each day that we are open. What does 'Walk-Up' and 'Pre-Booked' tickets mean? Please check the details below for the ticket prices and days we are open. (Please note we are closed each Friday and Saturday)

Fans of Downton Abbey are thrilled (as we are) that a Downton Abbey movie has been announced, thus we have one special weekend to end our Summer Season: Heroes at Highclere September 8th and 9th. Pre-Booked Tickets available here. We are delighted to welcome Julian Fellowes, the creator of Downton Abbey, and there will be more news of cast here as well!

Outside the public open days, we have specific guided tours or other events through which we can share this beautiful home. The numbers of guests are often small and we usually include some refreshments. We endeavour to offer a tour of some kind nearly every week so please see the ticket web site for possible dates or email us: [email protected]. All these special guided tours or experiences are pre-book only.
