Downton Abbey movie location hunt

A time-travel back to Edwardian London


Downton Abbey Location

Yorkshire may have been the setting for the earlier episodes, but London started to hog the limelight as the show clocked its later innings. Remember Lady Edith’s risqué romance with that old smooth-talking magazine editor Michael Gregson? 

Flashback to the popular scenes set at the city’s iconic landmarks. Play guessing games to jog your memory. Buckingham Palace, Lancaster House, Bridgewater House, Belgrave Square, Criterion Restaurant, Ritz Hotel, Piccadilly Circus, Hyde Park, Albert Memorial, Astor House, St. Pancras Station, and these are just for starters. How many could you count?

Be bowled over by a few secret locations, including Lord Grantham’s London stately home. Our accredited Private Driver Guide happens to be a Downton Abbey fanatic. Brace for non-stop peppy conversation, not crisp commentary.

Craving more? 

Sign up for our bespoke Downton Abbey in the English Countrysideexperience. Live out your screen dreams at Highclere Castle, Bampton Village and Enchanted Manor House at Basildon Park (the scene of Lady Roses wedding).

Black Cab Heritage Tours is Good to Go!

At Black Cab Heritage Tours we place the highest priority on the health and welfare of our customers, team and the wider community. This is particularly the case during the current COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.  It may be a little while before our guests arrive from overseas, as the UK Government recently announced the current 14-day quarantine period remains in place for inbound tourists - to be reviewed every 3 weeks.  We have, however, started to offer a limited number of private tour options as of Saturday 4 July, initially to singles, couples and small nuclear family groups - and we continue to accept future reservations. 

Our approach is in line with the most recent guidance issued by the UK government, and additional advice from the World Health Organisation. We have also put in new health and safety measures in order to promote social distancing and to limit all non-essential face-to-face contact, which has been recognized by Visit Britain as "Good to Go!"
