Discover the real Downton Abbey
Downton Abbey has become one of television’s biggest success stories, but the period drama set in a fictional house in North Yorkshire is actually filmed in a number of locations in southern England. While Bampton in Oxfordshire doubles as Downton village, the architectural star of the show is undoubtedly the “Jacobethan” country seat of the Earl of Carnarvon — Highclere Castle in Hampshire. The walk follows the public footpath across the estate and back again; with an alternative return route (marked in red) over estate paths open only during the summer.
