Tues 12 July

Visit to Highclere Castle and Gardens – Home of Downton Abbey (full day)

Cost - £65 to include transport

The first written records of the estate date back to 749 when an Anglo-Saxon King granted the estate to the Bishops of Winchester. Bishop William of Wykeham built a beautiful medieval palace and gardens in the park. Later on, in 1679, the palace was rebuilt as Highclere Place House when it was purchased by Sir Robert Sawyer, the direct ancestor of the current Earl of Carnarvon. In 1842, Sir Charles Barry, who also designed the Houses of Parliament, transformed Highclere House into the present-day Highclere Castle.

During the First World War, Highclere Castle was converted into a hospital for wounded soldiers run by the 5th Countess of Carnarvon. Then, in the Second World War, Highclere Castle was home to children evacuated from London.

There are between 250 and 300 rooms in the Castle Saloon and during your tour you will explore the main state rooms so familiar from "Downton Abbey". You will see some of the bedrooms after which you will follow the stairs down to the cellars and old staff quarters where you will find the Egyptian Exhibition, celebrating the 5th Earl of Carnarvon's discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun.

Wed 13 July

Afternoon Tea at The Ritz, Mayfair (am – afternoon)

Cost - £65

Indulge in a slice of the finest British tradition and enjoy Afternoon Tea at The Ritz London.

Whilst dining at The Ritz, savour a selection of finely cut sandwiches, freshly baked scones with Cornish clotted cream and strawberry preserve, and a mouth-watering range of exquisitely presented pastries and teacakes, replenished on request.

As well as 18 different types of loose-leaf tea to choose from, why not sip a glass of Champagne to add some extra sparkle to the occasion.

This most charming traditional Afternoon Tea in Mayfair is served in the spectacular surroundings of the hotel’s former Ballroom located in The Ritz Club, on the lower ground floor of the hotel.   For the first time in over a century, you can dine in this wonderful venue for a limited time.

The Ritz London is the only hotel in the UK to have a certified Tea Master, Giandomenico Scanu, who travels around the world to various tea plantations to source our wonderful teas.
