A chronicle of the lives of the British aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in the early 20th century, Downton Abbey has become an iconic television series and fascination for many people the world over. It conveniently provides the perfect backdrop for an exploration of the most beautiful, iconic and interesting properties across the UK. With particular attention to historical detail, World War One and quintessential Englishness, our Downton Abbey itinerary is not just for those who know their Lady Sybil from their Lady Edith. Although we make sure to visit the obligatory ‘Downton Village’ of Bampton and the Grantham House situated in Basildon Park, this itinerary also stops at the regal Blenheim Palace and quaint Swinbrook Inn - also the location of Lady Sybil’s romantic elopement to the chauffeur Tom Branson.

From London to Loch Lomond, via the picturesque English countryside, our ten day Downton Abbey tour takes you around our favourite and must-see spots to experience life in the style of Lord Grantham and the Crawley family. Starting in the unbeatable city of London and taking in the sites of Oxfordshire, the Cotswolds, Berkshire, Sussex and even the majesty of Loch Lomond, you will finish this itinerary feeling like a truly gentrified member of society.

This luxury tour is purely a suggested itinerary. It can be booked as is or alternatively used as a starting point for creating your own perfect bespoke holiday.
