Explore historic city streets on the Downton Abbey Walking Tour of London. On this leisurely stroll around England’s capital, discover some famous filming locations and re-live many iconic scenes from your favourite period drama.

While Downton Abbey is set in the Yorkshire countryside, many areas of London were used to film its city-based storylines. The streets and buildings here not only represented the capital, but were also used to recreate parts of Liverpool and York too.

Full description

On the Downton Abbey Walking Tour London, you’ll have the chance to see all of your favourite locations.

Revisit some of the happy moments from the show. Like the filming location of The Lotus Club, where Lady Rose dances with jazz singer Jack Ross. The Savile Club (which is the actual name above the door) boasts many more claims to fame than just Downton AbbeyHG Wells, Thomas Hardy and Rudyard Kipling were all once regular members of the club.

You’ll also pass by The Criterion. This high-class restaurant in Picadilly Circus is where Michael Gregson wined and dined Lady Edith. And not to forget The National Gallery, where Cora and Simon Bricker admired the paintings of Piero della Francesca.

But not all of the Crawley’s trips to the city were happy ones, and your guide will also point out some of the sadder storylines that unfolded on these streets. You will get to follow in the footsteps of Anna, as she retraced Mr Bate’s movements, and follow Lady Edith’s path when she learns she is pregnant.

And there are many other spectacular sites to take in too. Many of which are full of their own interesting history. See 35 Belgrave Square, which doubles up as Grantham House, the home of Lady Rosamund Painswick. Or The National Liberal Club, where Lady Mary secretly meets up with Tony Gillingham, telling her family that she is attending a ‘sketching tour’.
