As Downton Abbey’s final season prepares for broadcast in the States, many will undoubtedly be on the edge of their seats as we say goodbye to the Crawley family, who have kept us entertained these past few years with stories of love, loss and hope in their continued efforts to adapt to a changing world. While the series may be ending, rumours of a spin off movie arose this year, and Julian Fellows is supposedly working on a prequel, focusing on Robert and Cora’s meeting and marriage! Hopefully then it won’t be a goodbye to Downton just yet! With British Tours, you’ll be able to re-live the drama of Downton by visiting the filming locations, such as the real castle that features as Downton Abbey! Don’t worry if you weren’t able to purchase tickets online, as our guides are able to help you purchase tickets at the gates. You’ll be able to see such rooms as the library where the family resided throughout the series, and the kitchens were their loyal servants such as Daisy, Mrs Patmore, Anna and Mr Bates share their meals with scheming servants such as Thomas. After visiting the castle, you’ll be able to visit the village where the outside scenes were filmed. The village contains not only the village green where war memorial was built in series 5, but the church where many of the wedding scenes are filmed. It’s also the sight of Isobel Crawley’s house in the series!
