Full description
After departing London in the morning, you will head towards Highclere Castle, in the south west of England. Upon arrival at Highclere Castle, there will be time to enjoy the beautiful gardens; The Monks Garden, White Border, the Secret Garden and Wood of Goodwill, before you eventually enter the castle itself. There will be time for a visit to the tearooms where you can enjoy a light lunch, snack or afternoon tea made in the castle kitchen, with a total of 3 hours being spent at the castle. Highclere Castle has been the seat of the Carnarvon family since 1679, undergoing major rebuilding work over the centuries with the 3rd Earl of Carnarvon eventually hiring Sir Charles Barry to transform the home into the truly stunning mansion seen today. On entry to Highclere Castle, visitors will follow a route to view the state rooms, which include the saloon, library, dining room, music room, drawing room and smoking room. Visitors can then go up the red stairs to view some of the bedrooms and the gallery, before walking down the oak staircase back to the saloon, the heart of the house. Many of the rooms from the Downton Abbey series can be seen on the tour, including the parlor where the Crawleys take tea, the bedrooms and of course the dining room (the scene of many a family argument).
