Dates for your Diary
Thu Aug 5th Highclere Castle - £32 per person

If you were booked onto the April 2020 or August 2020 trip you have been moved to this date.

This is an to explore this beautiful house in extensive gardens. Highclere has a rich, multifaceted history dating back to the year 749. It was the set for the popular television series Downton Abbey where the movie premiered in September 2019.

It is the home of the 8th Earl and Countess of Carnarvon where in 1922 the 5th Earl and trusted friend and colleague Howard Carter planned their excavation season leading to the discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamun. During his explorations, he both discovered and purchased Egyptian artefacts, the current occupants have opened a new Egyptian Exhibition throughout the cellars of the Castle to celebrate the 5th Earls achievements. The British Museum and Newbury Museum have kindly lent back further statues and antiquities which had originally been lent to them by the Carnarvon family. The Antiquities Room contains jewellery, beautiful crafted jars and a coffin of a noblewoman from 3,500 years ago.

There is a tea shop on site.
