Visit the real Downton Abbey with Viking River Cruises
February 2016 

If you've been following Downton Abbey, you know the final season is just about to wrap up. What to do now? How about an exclusive visit to Highclere Castle in England to tour the television show's setting for the past six years... and learn the fascinating real history of one of the world’s most famous houses.

While in the area, pay a visit to the University of Oxford (the oldest university in the English-speaking world), Blenheim Palace (Sir Winston Churchill's birth place) and the iconic rolling hills of Cotswolds (complete with quintessential English stone villages).

Your three days in the English countryside are all part of a three day extension to your Paris and the Heart for Normandy Viking river cruise itinerary. Ask us to start planning your bragging rights!
