Emmy winning TV drama series Downton Abbey, was filmed on location at Highclere Castle. See where all your favourite characters performed.
In real life Highclere Castle has been home to the Carnarvon family since 1679. Built on an ancient site, the original house was recorded in the Domesday Book. The Castle’s history also includes a fascinating connection with ancient Egypt, as the 5th Earl of Carnarvon, with Howard Carter, discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings in 1922. The Castle now houses an exhibition that commemorates this historic event, including some rare antiquities from the 5th Earl’s earlier Egyptian excavations.
