Highclere is the home of the 8th Earl & Countess of Carnarvon and it is where TV drama Downton Abbey was filmed. Visit the castle to learn about real life at Highclere and at the same time see the Drawing Room in which Maggie Smith delivered many a withering comment to some unfortunate relation! Then you can find Tutankhamun in the cellars in castle’s fascinating Egyptian Exhibition and take a walk in the grounds. Refreshments are available on site.
There is a refreshment stop on the outward journey at Haskins West End.
