You will depart from central London by mini coach and take a 90 minute (approx) journey out of London to the first stop of the day- the historic 10th century farmstead that featured as Yew Tree Farm in Series 4 and 5.

From here you will set off to the heart of rural Oxfordshire where several villages have been used in the world of Downton Abbey. The next Downton Abbey location that you will see is ‘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 take lunch and have some free time to explore the village for yourself.
For Wednesday departures the day will finish with a visit to one of the homes of the Crawley family. For Saturday tours this will be Downton Place – the 16th century house and grounds that featured as Downton Place in Series 3. For Wednesday tours the finale to the day tour will be the stunning 18th century Georgian property whose interior became Grantham House, the Crawleys’ London town house that featured in the end of Season 4 Special.
