Overview

This is a rare and exclusive opportunity to visit the "real Downton Abbey", the stunning residence of Earl and Countess Carnavon. Your ticket gives you access to the castle and gardens, as well as the Egyptian Exhibition housed in the cellars. Inside the castle, which was designed by Sir Charles Barry in 1842, you will find gorgeous state rooms resplendent with rich silks, baroque ceilings and magnificent paintings.

In the late nineteenth century it was a hive of political life and later encapsulated the glamour of Britain's Edwardian period. Downstairs you can marvel at a fascinating exhibition of Egyptian antiquities and treasures collected by the 5th Earl of Carnarvon, who famously financed the search for the tomb of Tutankhamen in 1922 and discovered it with his archaeological colleague Howard Carter. After exploring the castle, there is much to enjoy in the extensive gardens and woodlands surrounding the castle.
