The Swan Inn, Swinbrook
The Swan Pub in Swinbrook is one of the best pubs in the country. Sadly, due to time limits on the tour, we cannot stop here for any length of time. It’s still worth a visit as this is the pub that Branson and Lady Sybil elope to in series 2. It also has aristocratic links of its own, having been a favourite of the late Dowager Duchess of Devonshire (the late Deborah Cavendish, nee Freeman-Mitford) who grew up in the nearby Asthall.
