Glen Yr Afon House Hotel
We have pleasure in inviting you to a very special coach trip which will give you the opportunity to explore what it is really like behind the scenes of “The Real Downton Abbey”.
The success of Downton Abbey took everyone by surprise from the first nervous apprehension whether anyone would like the first episode or stay with it for the second or third… the series has become a phenomenon with appreciative viewers all around the world.
Tickets would include access to Highclere’s beautiful castle and grounds which are visited by many thousands of visitors every year. There may also be the opportunity on the day for individuals to upgrade to the Egyptian Exhibition on the day if they wish at an additional cost.
The Tearooms will be available throughout the visit for tea/coffee with hot light lunches from 12noon until 2.00pm for those of you wanting to relax during the visit. You will also have the opportunity to visit the Castle Gift Shop which stocks a wide selection of gifts.
Please note that should any guests wish to join us who use a motorised wheelchair they would be unable to gain access to the castle but would have full use of the grounds.
