Event description

Description

Today we will not be visiting Highclere Castle but the Oxfordshire Cotswolds where the outdoor scenes are filmed.

We arrive at midday for a two-course carvery lunch with coffee at an old barn with sweeping views across the Windrush Valley. After lunch we enjoy a coach tour of the Downton Abbey villages ‘finishing with a visit to Yew Tree Farm where Lady Edith’s daughter was looked after.

Enjoy a Blue Badge guided tour of Downton Abbey Country. From the old Roman road we will see sleepy little Shilton where Mr. Bates went to work when he left Downton Abbey and Lady Sybil eloped with her chauffeur Tom. Along the way we also see the Repatriation Memorial Garden for fallen service personnel who are brought home via RAF Brize Norton. Beautiful Bampton is the filming location for Downton itself: here we see Isobel Crawley’s house, the Downton Cottage Hospital and that cottage that gave Mrs Patmore so much trouble.

Cogges Manor Farm at Witney is so old that the first owner is pictured on the Bayeaux Tapestry! The clocks stopped here more than a hundred years ago and in Downton this is Yew Tree Farm – where Lady Edith’s secret child is raised.
Watch a short film about Downton Abbey on location, explore the lovely old farmhouse kitchen that appears in the series and treat yourself to refreshments in the café before heading for home.
