This Christmas Day the curtain will fall on Downton Abbey. For one last time, the sun will pour through the windows and light up the magnificent house, and all will be united (upstairs, downstairs and us sat at home in front of the telly with a mound of mince pies) in their loyalty to, and love for, this great British institution.     Over six years of Downton Abbey, we’ve been overwhelmed by the beauty of the settings and style of Downton; each filming location has been diligently transformed into a sumptuous setting that is polished to a shine even Carson would be pleased with — however, the fantastic England locations where the Crawleys’ larger-than-life dramas played out live on.

 

Highclere Castle in Newbury, West Berkshire, is the stand-in for the family’s estate, and it has exploded in popularity since the PBS series started in 2010.        Highclere is pretty much closed to tours until spring, but there are 70 more locations around Britain where the period drama was filmed and are worthy of visiting.     For example, last season, Lady Mary dumped Lord Gillingham near the Peter Pan Statue in London’s Kensington Gardens. And historic Lancaster House, also in London, provided the glam stand-in for Buckingham Palace in the 2013 Christmas episode.

Going farther afield, Coggs Manor Farm in Oxfordshire is the site of the notorious pig farm where Lady Edith stashed her daughter Marigold until the child was brought to the family home.      For more ideas on an itinerary, check out the Ultimate Map of “Downton Abbey” Filming Locations that was developed by the website Wayfair.co.uk.
