Discover the rooms used in the filming of Downton Abbey on a visit to Highclere Castle. It’s a 90 minute bus ride from Central London to visit the castle and gardens. The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon live partly in the Castle, which is why it is only open for public viewing on selected days throughout the years. On these days, visitors can enjoy walking through the gardens, exploring the castle and visiting the tearooms. The castle originates in the 17th Century, and the interior contains lavish State Rooms. A guide will be present in each State Room to answer questions, and many of the rooms appear in the Downton Abbey TV series, including the infamous dining room.
The Downton Abbey movie is being partly filmed at Highclere Castle. And beyond the TV Series, Highclere has seen fame for other reasons. In 1910, Geoffrey De Havilland made one of the first flights in aviation history from these grounds. And during WWI, it was used as a hospital for wounded soldiers.
