Along with several others from our tour, we went into the library primarily to use the WC. We did look at all the pictures there and in the church related to Downton Abbey. My wife thought of this mainly as a gift shop and doesn't...More

Stating the obvious, & nothing that previous reviewers have not said about Bampton library,it is seen on our tv screens as Downton cottage hospital.(exterior shots anyway). There seems more to see inside than out, and this is maybe where the shortfalls may be evident. The...More

It was a very friendly conversation we had with the volunteer staff and their dog in Bampton Library. An amazing 400 year old building. Not only is it used as the hospital in Downton Abbey but it also has a fascinating WW1 display - not...More
