Downton Abbey’s exquisite filming locations

The British television series Downton Abbey was a critical success and a huge worldwide hit, winning two Golden Globes for Best Drama Television series and several Primetime Emmy Awards. The ensemble cast shared three Screen Actors Guild Awards for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. When Downton Abbey concluded in 2015 after six seasons, fans wanted more. Creator Julian Fellowes listened and brought the beloved characters to the big screen in a movie sequel titled simply: Downton Abbey. We were invited to England to have a look at some of the spots where the TV series and the movie were filmed. Come with us on a tour of Downton Abbey filming locations! ~Alexandra Heilbron

    What is the name of the castle where the Ball is filmed in the movie?

    Harewood House in Yorkshire. It was the actual home of Princess Mary, whose in-laws (they owned it at the time, the Princess didn’t live there until 1929) host the ball for the King and Queen in the film. Harewood House is also open to tourists.
