From London, head first to the University town of Oxford. The city of dreaming spires, boasts of one of the world's greatest and oldest universities, as well as some of the finest architecture in Europe. The colleges themselves are amongst the architectural heritage of the city; ivy-clad stone walls protect beautiful chapels, halls and libraries.

Go on a guided walking tour of Oxford before having some free time to grab a bite to eat. Try out a pub lunch at one of the many famous inns of Oxford.

Next, head for the beautiful village of Bampton in Oxfordshire. Bampton is the setting for exterior village scenes in the ITV series of Downton Abbey. Visit The Church, see Matthew Crawley's mother's house, the hospital and current people's homes, which are transformed into the Post Office as well as various pubs in the series. In the 'hospital', which is the public library, there is also the Vesey room where the Bampton Archive is housed and various local exhibitions are on display. Downton memorabilia such as beautiful cards, prints and mugs as well as books of the filming are all on offer to purchase.

Then head straight to the Highclere Castle made famous by the Downton Abbey TV series. See the magnificent public main hall, the library and the sitting rooms as featured in Downton Abbey.

Then enjoy the park lands created by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown who also designed the grounds of Blenheim Palace. Savor a cup of tea and cake at one of the tea rooms after touring the Castle. A signed copy of Lady Carnarvon's autobiography will also be given out to every customer on the tour. Grab the opportunity to have a good read and it is also a unique souvenir to remember this enchanting day!
