    Stop At: Cogges Manor Farm, Church Lane, Witney OX28 3LA England

    Your private day trip from London begins with a journey to the charming Oxfordshire Cotswolds hills, to visit some of the most familiar sites from the hit TV series and recent movie. Your first stop of the day is Cogges Manor Farm, known as Yew Tree Farm, where Lady Edith's daughter Marigold was raised by the Drewe family. Visit the kitchens and Mr Drewe’s living room, and see the farmyard with its collection of friendly animals, where many scenes were filmed.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Bampton, Bampton, Oxfordshire, England

    The next stop on your private day trip is delightful Shilton with its shallow ford, used in Series Two where Bates found employment, followed by the village of Swinbrook where Lady Sybil and Tom Branson spent the night on their aborted elopement. From here your journey continues to Bampton where you will see St Mary's church, transformed into St Michael's in Downton Abbey, the Cottage Hospital and Mrs Crawley's house, Mrs Patmore’s Bed and Breakfast and The Grantham Arms pub.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Highclere Castle Highclere Park, Highclere RG20 9RN England

    Your driver will then continue south, toward Hampshire. Here lies to the magnificent Highclere Castle, Downton Abbey itself! Lord and Lady Carnarvon have welcomed cast and crew here for the entire run of the show, so many of the locations in the house and grounds will be familiar to Downton Abbey fans. See the dining room, Robert Crawley’s library, various bedrooms, and walk down the grand staircase. Enjoy lunch in the tea room or cafe, and explore the beautiful grounds. In the basement there is a special Egyptology exhibition, thanks to the 5th Earl of Carnarvon and his excavations in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt.

    *Please note that Highclere Castle is open select dates in April & May, and Sunday through Thursday from July - September. If Highclere Castle is not open on your preferred day, we would recommend swapping Highclere Castle for a visit to Blenheim Palace. Our office will discuss this with you and advise should this be the case.
