Downton Abbey Filming Locations

Private guided tours to Downton Abbey filming locations

Locations in Britain have featured frequently in recent film and television productions and have generated fresh interest in our amazing wealth, beauty and variety of historic houses, castles, gardens, villages and landscapes.  Visiting places that you saw in a television series or a film is exciting. This page is about Downton Abbey but other historic costumed dramas come to mind also, including Doctor Thorne and Bridgerton.   I can take you to some of the places and we can relive the scenes that took place there.

Downton Abbey is set in Yorkshire and there are references to real Yorkshire places, like York, Harrogate, Ripon and Malton.  However, most of the scenes were filmed in the south of England, including London.  Some places have no public access and some can be viewed only from the outside.

Here are just some of the places that can be seen in London and the south of England. There are lots more and they will be added in due course.
