Hampshire: Highclere Castle
England is home to hundreds of incredibly stately homes, castles, and historic buildings. In fact, there's probably one only a few miles from your home. Every county has a stunning structure worth a visit, from famous filming locations used in productions like Pride and Prejudice and Brideshead Revisited to royal residences, ruined forts, and atmospheric abbeys (including, of course, Downton). We've scoured the whole of England to find one incredible building from each county so you can plan a historical road trip. Just be sure to check opening times before you jump in the car. And bear in mind, this is just the start; we haven't even touched on Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland yet!
