You've arrived at Downton Abbey!

This day trip whisks you away from London's bustle on a comfortable coach into the heart of Oxfordshire's Cotswolds. The first stop is Cogges Manor Farm, transformed into "Yew Tree Farm" in the series. Explore the working farmyard, meet some friendly Red Devon cattle, and peek into the historic kitchens where meals fit for the Crawley family were prepared. Next, you'll travel to the village of Bampton, the real-life Downton village. Recognize St. Mary's Church from countless weddings, funerals, and maybe even a scandalous jilting? See the former cottage hospital and Mrs. Crawley's house, all brought to life on screen.

Fancy a spot of sightseeing?

After a lunch break in the Cotswold town of Woodstock, delve into the grandeur of Blenheim Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Did you know this estate boasts over 700 rooms and has its own fire brigade? Blenheim Palace doubled as the Palazzo Cadenza in the James Bond film Spectre. Bridgerton fans may recognize its Saloon as the setting for the Queen's Ball. Explore the staterooms steeped in history, the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Don't miss the permanent exhibition dedicated to Churchill's life and legacy, offering a glimpse into the world of this wartime leader.
