Description

Join us as we explore what it is really like behind the scenes of "The Real Downton Abbey".

The highly successful drama has led to a revival in the interest of this magnificent house in which it is set. Enjoy the elegant castle interior, the magnificent State Rooms and the highly acclaimed Egyptology Exhibition, before a stroll through the gardens and spectacular parkland designed by Capability Brown.

If you have been fascinated by the lives of the Crawley family, along with the whole nation, this is definitely the break for you.
