Would You Pay Over $24,000 to Marry at Downton Abbey?
When Highclere Castle in Newbury, UK isn’t being used as the set for the secrets and intrigue of the Grantham household in Downton Abbey, the historic estate is open to the public and available for wedding venue rentals. It’s a no brainer for the Downton Abbey obsessed or if you’d love to host a high-style Edwardian era English affair, but you’ll have to pay a pretty penny. Inside, the castle can seat 140, but it’s also possible to host a tented event on the historic estate’s gorgeous grounds. Now that you’ve picked the venue all you have to do is convince the Dowager Countess (aka Dame Maggie Smith) to make an appearance!
