Step back in time with us this July and GoWightAway with IOW Tours as we take you to the absolutely stunning Highclere Castle – The Home of Downton Abbey.
Highclere Castle is a 19th century architectural beauty, set in almost 1000 acres of parkland near Newbury.
The 200 – 300 rooms (No one has bothered to count them!) remains the part time residence of the real-life Earl and Countess of Carnarvon. The creator of ‘Downton Abbey’ and long-standing friend of the Carnavon Family Julian Fellows modelled the fictional Grantham Estate on Highclere after visiting the property on numerous occasions.
Before the popularity of ‘Downton Abbey’, Highclere Castle was struggling with crumbling turrets and damp, leaving at least 50 of the rooms uninhabitable.
Downton Abbey fans have helped to turn the castle’s fortunes around.
