This was a small-group tour. We met Amber, our tour guide, and from then on, it was everything Downton!! On the way to Bampton, the village where the village scenes were shot, Amber played the first episode of Season 1. The village is amazing. I was surprised to find that it's smaller than I thought. Be sure to stop by the bakery for delicious cupcakes! Then on to Highclere Castle. No photography is allowed inside but it is almost exactly like it looks on the series. It was wonderful to wander the lawns where Mary and Matthew wandered! On the way back to London, Amber gave us a Downton quiz which was much more fun that her simply giving facts. Then, another episode from a later season. I would highly recommend this tour for all Downton Abbey fans!!!
