Itinerary

London to Cotswolds

We depart London to begin our Downton Abbey day out! Firstly, we’ll drive through the delightful and charming Cotswolds which double up for Yorkshire in the Downton Abbey TV series and recent Downton Abbey film. Here we can explore honey coloured villages and gentle rolling hills as we head over to the centuries-old farm at Cogges. We can enjoy a stroll though the farmyard and fields and say hello to the friendly animals that live here. We will learn of the role Cogges played in Downton Abbey as Yew Tree Farm, home of the Drewe family and the place where Lady Edith’s daughter Marigold was raised. Take your seats in the Manor House for a specially recorded documentary centered on a day’s filming here then relax over a coffee in the old milking barn.

Bampton Village

Next stop on our day trip is Bampton village, which any Downton Abbey fan will immediately recognise as Downton Village. Here we can explore the church and graveyard at St Mary’s where some of the characters have their final resting place. Inside the church we can see where many of them married, and at least one was jilted. Outside is Mrs Crawley’s house and the village green. The Cottage Hospital lies next door and we can see the houses that were transformed into the Grantham Arms pub, the Dog and Duck, Mrs Patmore’s Bed and Breakfast and the village post office. Souvenir hunters will love the little gift shop here where Downton memorabilia can be purchased.

Downton Abbey

Next stop is our visit to Downton Abbey itself! The magnificent house was designed by Charles Barry for the Earls of Carnarvon and Highclere Castle is still the home of the 8th Earl today. But for many of us this beautiful house and the landscaped gardens by “Capability” Brown will always be the house and grounds of Downton Abbey, both in the TV series and the hit film. 
 
See the dining room, scene of some of Violet’s most wonderful comments, Lord Robert’s library, the sitting room, the family bedrooms and walk down the grand staircase to the salon. Check out the Tutenkhamun and Egyptology exhibition in the basement and learn of the 5th Earl’s expeditions to the Valley of the Kings. Explore the landscaped grounds and gardens and enjoy lunch or afternoon tea in the restaurant. Don’t forget to visit some of the filming locations outside on other parts of estate. After your visit to Downton Abbey, our day trip ends and we return to London, after a wonderful day of discovery for any Downton Abbey fan!
