Full description
Visit the real-life Downton Abbey on this guided tour of Highclere Castle. Start your tour in the main State Rooms before heading upstairs to the Galleried Bedrooms. There are over 300 rooms in the castle, many of which you will recognize from scenes from the show. After exploring the bedrooms, head downstairs to the cellars and old staff quarters where you will find the Egyptian Exhibition. At the Egyptian Exhibition, discover the events that led to the Earl of Carnarvon's discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun. Wander through the exhibition's 6 rooms and learn more about his fascination with Egypt, his early excavations and even admire the Earl's own collection of antiques. In the afternoon, explore the university city of Oxford and its incredible architecture. Enjoy a walking tour of the city with your expert guide, who will bring the history and charm of this beautiful city to life. As you walk through the cobbled streets, witness architecture from every period in English history, from early Saxon right through to the Gothic Revival.
