Enjoying the Series and experiencing a version of it it real life, the exhibition was both nostalgic and superb.. It spans 3 floors and blends the atmosphere of the Classic Manor House with modern media such as video and hologram and representations of "ambient noise"...More

This was a must see for my 18 year old fan of Downton Abbey. She was so excited and this exhibit didn’t disappoint. She really enjoyed it.
