Tour the Real “Downton Abbey”
by Heather Bond
Fans of Masterpiece Classics’ “Downton Abbey”, a PBS series detailing the lives of the Crawley family in Yorkshire, England, will delight in the news that they can now visit the Abbey…to the tune of $12,000.
Visitors will tour Highclere Castle (the Abbey’s setting in Newbury, England), the gardens, eat lunch, and explore the rest of the estate in a 4×4.
A more modest option admits a family of five to a limited tour of the castle and gardens for $73–sans lunch.
Further details on the tour and booking can be found here.
