I have had a love for all things British, and by extension, all things Downton Abbey. While I’ve been to London many times, a visit to Highclere Castle in 2014 was a first time experience. Of course, everything looked as it does on television, UPSTAIRS at least.
But DOWNSTAIRS is not the same because that’s TV. At Highclere Castle, the downstairs holds an Egyptian Exhibit. Here you find replicas of some of the ‘wonderful things’ Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon found in King Tutenkamen’s tomb including newspaper articles, and photos. It was the fulfillment of my desire to see history brought to life; a pure pleasure. This is a must see for a Downton Abbey fan.
Does that sound like you too? If a vacation in the United Kingdom is on your bucket list, then begin planning now. Tour Highclere Castle, see the Egyptian Exhibit in the basement and visit other locations that have been seen on the show. Frankly, there’s no better time than this summer to visit and most specifically before September, when the filming begins and the house is closed for visiting. A perfect time to visit would be during the Heroes at Highclere event happening on September 8 & 9, just prior to closing. Not only that, but you could experience the honor this country gives to their World War I history.
