Bampton and The Cotswolds

Your tour can also include a trip to the local villages of Bampton (site of St Mary's Church which doubles as St Michael's and All Angels in the series, and also the fictional Dog & Duck pub) and Swinbrook (location of the 'Swan Inn').

Alternatively, combine your visit to Highclere with a visit to another Cotswolds attraction, such as Byfleet Manor, also featured in the Downton Abbey series as the home of Lady Violet.
