Having become a popular attraction thanks to the hit television series Downton Abbey, the Highclere Castle will soon have an added appeal as it prepares to welcome overnight visitors for the first time next year. Fans of the series and history buffs alike can immerse themselves in a period charm of the Reneissance era with a stay at the London Lodge, which occupies a smaller property still within the estate. Owned by the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon, the property, said to be built in 1840, have undergone restoration efforts over the past tww-and-a-half years and is now set to cater to more than just one-day Downton Abbey-themed tours. Bookings are now open for stays on Valentine’s Day and select weekends from spring through summer 2016 starting at US$540, with facilities including Wi-Fi, Tv, a mini fridge, electric kettles, and more.
