What to Expect
On this day tour you will explore some of the Downton Abbey film locations featured in both London and the Oxfordshire countryside. London’s highlights include off-the-beaten track locations full of historical buildings and cobbled streets, as well as grand houses, clubs and restaurants with aristocratic and regal links. Leaving the hubbub of town, your afternoon will be spent visiting Downton Village, Yew Tree Farm and enjoying the picturesque Cotswold scenery and villages.

Traveling by mini coach, the tour will provide you with an insight into the making of the show and uncover stories behind some of the places that you will visit on the tour.

Starting in central London your tour will take you to the Inns of Court which have been popular sites for filming. You will see the clinic Lady Edith visits when she discovers she is pregnant, the Russian Refugee church where Price Kuragin is staying, you can follow in the footsteps of Mr Bricker & Cora when they go for a walk and spot the café where Tom spies Lady Rose out with the Jazz singer Jack Ross. Other London sites visited include exteriors of Lord Gillingham’s townhouse, the Liverpool Grand Hotel and Grantham House. After you have explored London Town, it is time to head out to the countryside. The first location that you will visit is about 70 miles out of town, and (depending on traffic) the journey lasts between 1.5 – 2 hours.

Upon your arrival at the historic 10th century farmstead that featured as Yew Tree Farm in Series 4 and 5, enjoy a complimentary Cotswolds Platter lunch. Following this, take a guided tour of this location, which featured as the home of Mr Drewe, the struggling tenant who agrees to secretly help raise Lady Edith’s daughter.

From here you will set off to the heart of rural Oxfordshire where several villages have been used in the world of Downton Abbey. You will see ‘Kirbymoorside’, where Anna’s bus splashes through the stream outside the pub where Bates worked when he left Downton Abbey. There will be a short stop at the church that Matthew and Edith visit in Series 1 (Episode 3) and you’ll pass the pub where Branson and Lady Sybil stay when they elope in Series 2.

Most notably you will visit Downton Village where you will get a guided tour of the village and see familiar sites such as exteriors of Downton hospital, the village pub, the former home of Matthew Crawley and the local church amongst others. Following this guided tour you will be able to explore the village for yourself.

The tour finishes at Temple Station.
