The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon are delighted to welcome you to Highclere Castle for a magical screening of the Downton Abbey film in the Library at Highclere Castle, which is also the Library in “Downton Abbey” in the TV series and Film.
This is the perfect opportunity for Downton Abbey fans to enjoy watching the beloved Crawley family and their intrepid staff prepare for the most important moment of their lives ahead of the King and Queen of England’s arrival, whilst being within the real-life film set itself!
When you arrive at Highclere Castle, you will first set eyes on the twinkling Christmas trees leading you up the main driveway to the front door of Castle.
Step into the warmth of the House and you will be welcomed into the Saloon with the roaring fire, a glass of champagne and a delicious selection of canapes specially selected by the Head Chef.
The Saloon is a magnificent room at the very heart of the Castle with a Christmas garland winding its way down the bannisters of the Oak Staircase and, of course, the large Christmas tree taking pride of place.
You will also have the opportunity to explore the State Rooms such as the Drawing Room, Smoking Room and Gallery Bedrooms, before taking your seat in our very own Cinema within the Castle Library and popcorn in hand! Could there be anything more memorable?
