    Highclere Castle, Newbury, England

    July 12, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Today started with our visit to Highclere Castle. It was impressive to walk towards it with the blue sky in the background but, as we have frequently found on this trip, it wasn't as large as we expected. We toured through all the upstairs rooms you see on the show, including some of the bedrooms, and the inside was even more luxurious than you see on TV. The servants area downstairs has been turned into an exhibition for the finding of King Tut's tomb. An earlier Lord Carnarvon from the castle was a co-discoverer of this. We wish we could include photo's of the inside but photography was not allowed. We did walk down the main staircase!Read more
