Downton Abbey: The Exhibition provides a fascinating look at all aspects of the post-Edwardian period in which Carnival Films’ popular TV series is set and offers an in-depth insight into the remarkable historic events which would go on to shape the world. From World War I to the Roaring Twenties, visitors have the chance to learn about British society, culture and fashion. The first-ever fully immersive experience set inside the world of the multi award-winning series, the exhibition connects fans with their favorite characters, costumes, locations and historic events of the era, and showcases never-before-seen footage.

Visitors will even come up-close to over 50 of the show’s official costumes worn by their favorite actors including Michelle Dockery, Hugh Bonneville and Dame Maggie Smith.
