Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey By Day Diaries Blog

Downton Abbey by Day Diaries.
I love watching this show, it brings excitement to my life every sunday evening. I have thrown together a little about the castle and Downton. Highclere Castle is the home of the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon and also features as Downton Abbey. Highclere Castle is one of England's most beautiful Victorian Castles set amidst 1,000 acres of spectacular parkland. The Carnarvon family has lived at Highclere since 1679, and the current Castle stands on the site of an earlier house, which in turn was built on the foundations of the medieval palace owned by the Bishops of Winchester for some 800 years. The Castle it self is a beautiful building and welcomes home visitors and guests, it caters for all kinds of celebrations, from weddings to parties. As i said i am a huge fan of the show and let it cary-on being shown on our screens for a long time yet.

The series is set in the fictional Downton Abbey, the Yorkshire country estate of the Earl and Countess of Grantham, and follows the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants during the reign of King George V. The first series spans the two years before the Great war beginning with news of the singing of the Titanic in 1912, which sets the story in motion. The second series covers the years 1916 to 1919, and the 2011 Christmas Special covers the 1919 Christmas period, ending in early 1920.
