If you're a fan of Downton Abbey, don't miss this. We were lucky to score a talk and tour hosted by Lady Caernarvon and the location manager for the show. Great insights into how they picked locations and shot the scenes. The house is the...More
Went to visit Highclere on Sunday with our mum's. A mixed bunch, some downton fans, some art fans, some just loving visiting stately homes.
The overall feel of our experience was that we should be grateful Highclere have allowed us in. So many people being...More
