Discover the real-life Downton Abbey with a stay at Regency Park Hotel!
Our team here at Regency Park Hotel
could talk for a long time about what makes a break at our modern and
well-situated hotel so special. We could discuss our wonderfully light and airy
rooms, for instance, or our generously equipped health club, or even the fact
that you’re close to such major local attractions as Newbury Racecourse,
Basildon Park House and Donnington Castle.
However, for so many of our guests, it is unquestionably the magical opportunity to take in the real-life Downton Abbey that most appeals to them.
Yes, that’s right – the main shooting location for the acclaimed historical period drama series, Highclere Castle, is located within easy reach of Regency Park Hotel. When you’re looking to combine the best of the old and new in your stay in Berkshire, there are no better hotels near Downton Abbey than ours – and here are the exact reasons why!
A very special sight indeed
The stunning country house that TV viewers around the world recognise as Downton Abbey is, in real life, Highclere Castle, a Jacobethan masterpiece by the architect Charles Barry, with a park designed by Capability Brown. The country seat of the Earl of Carnarvon, this stately home is every inch as remarkable to witness in person as it is on the small screen.
In fact, that small screen is about to become a big screen, for while the original ITV series concluded in 2015, Highclere Castle has recently served once again as Downton Abbey for the franchise’s forthcoming movie adaptation, which is scheduled for release later this year.
We would suggest, then, that you take your chance to book a room at one of the most popular hotels near Downton Abbey now, before ‘Downton fever’ reaches its highest pitch once again!
How can you experience Highclere Castle for yourself?
As Highclere Castle is not continually open right through the year, it is important to check the latest information about when you will be able to visit, as you can find at www.highclerecastle.co.uk.
The official Highclere Castle website will give you all of the information you require to secure your tickets for a visit during 2019, whether you would like to attend one of the house’s special winter events or instead come along for the spring opening season.
Then, once you’ve done that, it’ll be time for you to book your room at Regency Park Hotel! Take a look at our latest special offers, including our Winter Warmer and Winter Charm deals, and you’ll be able to appreciate for yourself even more reasons why we are one of the most sought-after hotels near Downton Abbey.
