Many fans of the hit show Downton Abbey will want to pay a visit to the great house itself called Highclere Castle. There are many options available to tour the house (which we covered before here).
But you can also visit the house on your own but you have to plan far in advance. Because it’s still very much a private home – and will also be closed for the filming of series 4 – it’s only open a few days this year. On top of this, there’s only a limited number of tickets available and if they sell out – that’s it.
The Highclere Castle Website has just released the open dates for 2013 and made online ticket booking available. They sold out in days last year – so if you plan to visit Highclere Castle at any point this year, you need to book tickets NOW.
