My mom and i are fans of the show, so while she was visiting me in England we drove out to see Highclere Castle. Look ahead of time to make sure it is open because its only open a few days a month ( only certain months as well) Tickets are sold online but sell out almost instantly. I called the castle to inquire the odds of getting in without a ticket . They were very nice and told me if you come without a ticket that they can not guarantee you will get in, but have yet to turn anyone away yet.
We went in May, it was rainy and chilly.. but we were able to walk right in no que to get tickets. The castle itself is beautiful. They only let you see a portion of course as i believe its still lived in, Many of the areas are through small hallways so i would guess ion a busy day it would take a lot longer to get through the castle. e walked through the castle in about 30 mins. We skipped the Egyptian exhibit , but now i wish i had done it.
Due to it being cold and rainy we did not get to explore the gardens, but from what we saw the property was beautiful. We had lunch downstairs in the cafeteria, and the food was decent,
