Explore the film locations used in the hit TV series Downton Abbey including Downton Village, Yew Tree Farm and some of the houses owned by the Crawley family!
Explore some of Downton Abbey film locations featured in both London and the Oxfordshire countryside. London's highlights include off-the-beaten-track locations full of historical buildings and cobbled streets, as well as grand houses, clubs and restaurants with aristocratic and regal links. Leaving the hubbub of town, your afternoon will be spent visiting Downton Village, Yew Tree Farm and enjoying the picturesque Cotswold scenery and villages.
Traveling by mini coach, the tour will provide you with an insight into the making of the show and uncover stories behind some of the places that you will visit on the tour.
Starting in central London, your tour will take you to the Inns of Court, which have been popular sites for filming. See the clinic Lady Edith visited when she discovered she was pregnant and the Russian Refugee church where Prince Kuragin stayed at. Follow the footsteps of Mr. Bricker and Cora when they went for a walk and spotted the cafe where Tom spied Lady Rose out with the Jazz singer, Jack Ross. Other London sites to be visited include exteriors of Lord Gillingham's townhouse, the Liverpool Grand Hotel and Grantham House. After you have explored London Town, it is time to head out to the countryside. The first location that you will visit is about 70 miles out of town.
Upon your arrival at the historic 10th-century farmstead, which was featured as Yew Tree Farm in Series 4 and 5, you can enjoy a complimentary Cotswolds Platter. Lunch can be purchased in the cafe. Following lunch, you will have a guided tour of this location, which was featured as the home of Mr. Drewe, the struggling tenant who agreed to secretly help raise Lady Edith's daughter.
From here, you will set off to the heart of rural Oxfordshire where several villages have been used in the world of Downton Abbey. See "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 visited in Series 1 (Episode 3). Also pass by the pub where Branson and Lady Sybil stayed when they eloped 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, among others.
The tour finishes at Temple Station.
Very interesting. London, Costwolds (beautiful farm) and Bampton, so beautiful village. Coach very comfortable. Because of heavy traffic we came back late. The guide was interesting, but speaking very fast, so quite difficult for those, like us, whose mother tongye is not english. We would have appreciated more time, for example, in Bampton, just to walk by, explore this beautiful village. The reception at the farm is great. Lunch very good, but quite fast. Not to much time for the toilets. Information on web site about the location could be more precised.
