Downton Abbey Tours from Oxford - page 2

Downton Abbey Tours from Oxford

Few British period TV series have captured the world’s attention the wayDownton 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 inDownton 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 toDownton 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.

The Oxford Ghost Tour

The Oxford Ghost Tour

Oxford at nightfall...The crowds are dispersing, and the deserted, gloomy streets await us. The Oxford Ghost Tour will lead you away from the bustle and noise of central Oxford into the eeriest parts of the city, the domain of demons, dark deeds, the Devil, and death. All the accounts are based on documented events. They feature not only paranormal manifestations, but also gruesome executions and heart-rending deaths, some from eye witness testimony. You will hear spine-chilling stories from the city's bloody past and of the spirit entities it has left behind. You will see the locations where the apparitions have revealed themselves, and may do again. You might sense their presence, feel their touch, hear their groaning, smell their putrefaction.
