Discover true Downton life at the beautiful Highclere Castle

Home to the Carnarvon family since 1679, take time to wander the beautiful 1,000 acre grounds and state rooms and discover the fascinating Egyptian artifacts from the 5th Earl of Carnarvon’s collection, who famously discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922. Just 19 minutes away.

Make sure to check when the castle is open on the Highclere Castle website before you visit as it is often closed for filming.
