Travel to the stunning roman city of Bath and explore its many museums and places of interest. It has some of the very finest architectural sights in Europe including the Roman Baths and Pump Room, Pulteney Bridge, the Abbey and Royal Crescent.
Highclere Castle, instantly recognisable as the set of Downton Abbey has a rich, multi-faceted heritage and has been home to the Carnarvon family since 1679. Built on an ancient site, the original house was recorded in the Domesday Book. The present day Castle was designed in 1842 by Sir Charles Barry, the architect also responsible for building the Houses of Parliament in Westminster.
Passengers visiting Highclere will alight the train at Newbury Racecourse and be transfered by road coach. They will have around 5 hours to explore the house and gardens.
Fares for this tour start from £109 in Premium Standard, £209 in Premier Dining and £269 in Pullman Style Dining.
