Delighting Guests Since 2008

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.

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).

Your health and safety are our top priorities at Black Cab Heritage Tours. We've implemented the following special measures to keep you safe both during and after your tour:

Private Tours: London Black Cabs have a maximum seating capacity for up to 6 guests in a private setting. This capacity is ideal for couples and small family groups.

Stringent Cleaning: Each guide sanitises their black cab with disinfectant cleaning agents after each tour activity. The passenger area has separately controlled air-conditioning. Driver Guides wash and sanitise their hands on a frequent basis throughout the day. In addition, hand sanitizer is available to all guests.

Social Distancing: A transparent partition screen provides a private passenger compartment, providing a safe space for guests. This exceeds the current 2 metres minimum distance based on UK Government guidelines. Our drivers promote panoramic sightseeing in the safest and cleanest form of London transport. Presentation stops are conducted in quiet open air locations, away from crowded hot spots.
