Highclere Castle

Distance - 10mins

Famed the world over as the filming location of period drama, Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle is one of England’s most beautiful Victorian Castles, set amidst 1,000 acres of spectacular parkland.

The Carnarvon family has lived at Highclere since 1679, and the current Castle stands on the site of an earlier house, which in turn was built on the foundations of the medieval palace owned by the Bishops of Winchester for some 800 years.

Whether you’re a Downton fan or just have an appreciation for historic properties, there are plenty of tours and experiences to choose from at Highclere Castle.
