Experience the lives of the Crawley family on our popular short break coach holiday to Downton Abbey, otherwise known as Highclere Castle. With its wonderful Victorian architecture and stunning location in the Hampshire countryside, Highclere Castle remains one of Britain's most impressive inhabited castles. Our great value short break enables you to enjoy this truly fantastic setting in over 1,000 acres of grounds and to take time to explore the setting of the hugely popular drama series Downton Abbey.
With your included entry ticket you can walk in the footsteps of the Crawley family, explore the luxurious interiors which have been sumptuously decorated in a variety of period styles and its magnificent gardens where the aristocratic family and their servants' lives unfold to over nine million viewers each week. Your ticket also includes entry to the sumptuous gardens and a fascinating Egyptian Exhibition displayed in the cellar of the castle itself.
On day one, you will visit historic Oxford, famed for its beautiful architecture and prestigious university, where you will have time at leisure for sightseeing, shopping and relaxation. Enjoy a walk or punt along the river, explore some of the 38 colleges or the locations where Harry Potter was filmed.
Also included is a visit to Bampton. This pretty village might be familiar to you as it doubles as the fictional town of Downton. Highlights include Churchgate House (the Crawley family home), Downton hospital and the church used for St Michael and All Angels.
