Catch up with the life and loves of the Crawley family in the capital on a Downton Abbey tour of London! Every well-to-do clan had a London pad to complement the family estate in the country and the Crawleys of Downton Abbey were no different. These fascinating tours let you discover the Crawleys' London.
The Crawleys upped sticks and left Downton Abbey for London when it was Rose's debutante summer season on the capital's social scene. Home in the capital was Grantham House in St James's Square. But the exterior shots of the house were actually filmed in Westminster. It's this sort of insider knowledge that makes this London Downton tour so interesting.
With so many links to London, the city often featured in episodes of the hit ITV period drama. Rose partied her heart out. Edith inherited The Sketch with its London offices and the flat of her editor lover Michael Gregson. And, of course, there's Robert's sister, Rosamund Painswick who lived permanently in London at 35 Belgrave Square and regularly received visitors from Downton.
These guided walking tours are packed to the gills with sights, landmarks and remarkably familiar locations, all on the Downton theme. Everything from Rose dancing the nights away at the Lotus Jazz Club where she meets Jack Ross, to Caxton Hall registry office where she marries Atticus.
Then there's Lady Grantham who is whisked off to the National Gallery by the flirty Simon Bricker, only for his hopes to be dashed when Cora turns him down. There's honestly so much London based drama surrounding the Crawley family, we don't know where to begin!
That's why we'll leave it to the expert guides to show your around the oh-so-familiar Downton Abbey London locations on these fun and entertaining tours. You'll be on foot for these visits, meeting at Temple Station and rounding off at Green Park. There are lots of places to see that'll bring all those favourite London scenes revolving around the Crawleys and their household to life - and all at a nice, leisurely pace. Enjoy your walk!
