Our Visit to Bampton
On August 9th, 2016 we did a coach trip with Middletons Tours. First stop was Bampton, better known as the Downton Village. What a thrill it was to walk in the beautiful familiar village. Next stop would be Highclere Castle, known to millions around the world as Downton Abbey.
The first place we recognized was St. Mary the Virgin Church which has been seen many times on the show.
Next to the church was Isobel Crawley's house.
Next we saw the Downton Hospital......the library, which is now a gift shop.
A few more houses in the beautiful village of Bampton.
Our tour continues with a trip to Highclere Castle, about an hour away from Bampton. To see photos click here.
