Downton Abbey fans – hog the attention of your historian guide all the way, but keep your eyes peeled for the sights of the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Sheep-studded hills, rural farmsteads, blues skies. Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey, the Grantham family home) is only available at certain times of the year.

When the castle is closed to the public or sold out we can still take in the view from the grounds. Downton devotees will find ye ancient market town of Bampton familiar – Downton Church, Downton Cottage Hospital, Grantham Arms pub. Peek into every alley in this charming hamlet. Daydream awhile over lunch at the riverside Swan Inn in Swinbrook village.

The next stop is Cogges and its historic manor house (Downton Abbey’s Yew Tree Farm). Linger at Shilton’s 18th-century humped-back bridge next to a bubbling brook.

Please pre-purchase your tickets before reserving this tour.

Can’t say enough good about this tour and our tour guide, Barry. It was so nice to have someone who knows the area and can take pictures for us! I also have to mention and specially thank Rob Woodford who helped organize the excursion. When originally booked, there were no more tickets (end of season) for Highclere Castle tour. But through Rob’s direct contact to the castle and influence we were able to secure tickets. Thanks Rob! We will always remember this trip with fond memories! Thank you!!!

Our driver was Barry. He was GREAT. We stopped all along the way and he took photos and really became our friend for the day. We stopped at sites in London, Highclere castle, and several other location stops where we enjoyed the day. We enjoyed snacks sitting in the shade at Highclere. He took us to the well hidden restaurant (it was Monday so the Pubs were mostly closed) – guess I shouldn’t mention where. Don’t want to spoil the secret. Anyway, it was a great day. THANK YOU BARRY!
