The unique university town of Oxford, with its amazing bookstores, eclectic museums, and historic pubs, is our home for five nights. While learning from a Blue Badge English Guide about the Victorian era and the American heiresses who married English aristocracy to save their estates, we visit Highclere Castle and Blenheim Palace.  In the Midlands, we visit Althorp House and have High Tea in Leamington Spa. For two nights we stay in Ironbridge,the symbol of the industrial revolution in England. A Victorian town shows us how people lived and worked in the late 1800s. All of this is wrapped in the bow of Downton Abbey. We enjoy the film sites at Highclere, Basildon Park, the charming Cotswolds, and in London. The itinerary aims to be mindful, informative, and fun.
