See top filming locations from the award-winning ‘Downton Abbey’ television series and several Harry Potter films on a full-day tour from London. After touring Christ Church College in Oxford, home to the legendary Hogwarts dining room, head to Highclere Castle in Hampshire – the real life Downton Abbey. Here you’ll get a real taste of Edwardian England, learning about popular characters from the much-loved period drama, as well as the real-life family who have owned the castle since the 17th century.
Meet your expert guide in London and set off by coach to the historic city of Oxford, approximately a 1.5-hour drive away. As you travel, your guide will keep you entertained with stories about this must-visit city, home to the world-famous Oxford University.
The colleges that make up Oxford University represent the city’s architectural highlights, and you’ll explore these during a comprehensive walking tour. Wander through ornate chapels, lavish libraries and spacious halls, and see the Great Hall dining room at Christ Church College – the inspiration behind the Hogwarts dining hall in several Harry Potter movies, like Harry Potter and the Deathly Harrows.
Before leaving the city, you’ll have free time to discover its endearing charms independently. Perhaps visit one of its famous ‘Old English’ inns for lunch (own expense) or maybe explore Oxford’s wealth of interesting streets and independent shops.
In the early afternoon, hop back on board your luxury coach and head south to Highclere Castle in Hampshire. Famous as the filming location for the hit TV series Downton Abbey, the stately castle dates back to the Victorian era and is set in the middle of 1,000 acres (405 hectares) of stunning parkland.
With your guide, tour this incredible castle and see rooms frequented by the likes of Lady Mary, Cousin Matthew, Lord Grantham and other characters in the popular Edwardian drama. Venture through the magnificent main hall, library and sitting rooms, and learn about the real-life family – the Carnarvons – who has lived here since the 17th century.
After your walking tour of Highclere Castle, you’ll have time to spend at leisure, perhaps exploring the beautiful grounds or relaxing with a hot drink and cakes in the castle’s tea rooms (own expense). Your full-day tour finishes back in London, where you’ll arrive in the early evening.
