Join us for a fabulous day out at Highclere Castle, also home of Downton Abbey. Your booking with us as well as your return coach includes entry into the castle, exhibition & gardens. There is no guided tour of the castle and it is free flow however there are guides in most of the rooms to answer any questions.
Highclere Castle is not only a beautiful building, but a warm and welcoming home. Playing host to family and friends, but also to events and celebrations with visitors and guests from around the world.
Many of the rooms and vistas will be familiar to viewers of ‘Downton Abbey’ – both the Drawing Room and Dining Room forming the backdrop to the dryly withering put-downs delivered by Maggie Smith, as the Dowager Countess to some poor unfortunate relation. The distinctive gardens and park designed by Capability Brown, offer interest and enjoyment throughout the year and gratifying growth and change, as the seasons turn.
The Tea Rooms are open from 10:00am to 5:00pm during public opening times for morning coffee and afternoon teas made in the
Castle Kitchens. Regretfully, they cannot offer a set menu of ‘Afternoon Tea’ to groups, however the Castle Tea Rooms offer light lunches, hot food and freshly baked scones between 12:00pm and 2:00pm. We are unable to pre-book tables.
