Downton Abbey Tours from Oxford - page 4

Downton Abbey Tours from Oxford

Few British period TV series have captured the world’s attention the way Downton Abbey did, with millions of viewers around the globe tuning in. Here are a few ways to follow in the footsteps of the famous Crawley family, using Oxford as a base.

Cotswolds Filming Sites

Many of the set locations made famous in Downton Abbey are in Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds—the countryside outside Oxford—and the city makes a great base from which to go exploring. Tours visit picturesque hamlets such as Bampton (which doubles up as the on-screen Downton village) Bladon, Cogges, and Swinbrook, and spot some of the locations featured in the series. There’s the home of Isobel Crawley, the church where Lady Mary married Matthew Crawley, the village where Lady Sybil eloped with then-chauffeur Tom Branson, and the Grantham Arms pub—where scheming maid Edna seduced the widowed Branson. Although not directly linked to Downton Abbey, nearby UNESCO World Heritage–listed Blenheim Palace is also featured on many tours from Oxford.

Highclere Castle Filming Sites

Home to the Carnarvon family, Highclere Castle is the real-life 17th-century stately home that doubled for Downton Abbey itself in the popular television series. Downton fans will recognize the castle’s sweeping driveway, grand facade, and main hall featured heavily throughout the series; some of the bedrooms were used as well.

Enjoy a few drinks and relax as I show you around this magnificent city - including stops in some of the most interesting and historic pubs in the world, to see where so many famous figures of the past have spent their student loans. The city of Oxford is commonly considered to be divided into two groups: the Town (local residents) and the Gown (students of the University). While I am currently a ‘townie’, I have been awarded a place to study at Oxford this year - and my fiancé is currently studying a DPhil. This gives me a unique perspective on both sides of the community and the city, and I will share it with you in a tour so entertaining and memorable that you will wish you lived here, or your money back! If you'd like to go into any colleges or other attractions, or if you wish to customise the tour in any other way, please feel free to message me. Group size is flexible. £60 for up to 4 people; £10 per additional person. Drinks not included!
