Have you watched Downton Abbey and wished, for a precious moment or two, to step inside the world of a great stately home? If you have answered with a big and loud ‘Yes!”, then this day is for you:-
Spend the morning at Syon House, the second largest private house in Greater London after Buckingham Palace. Lady Caroline Percy, who grew up at Syon, and Oliver Gerrish will be your hosts. Caroline, whose brother is the current Duke of Northumberland, is an expert on her family home and she, along with Oliver, will guide you through the sumptuous state apartments, as well as some of the family rooms.
Lunch will be in Lady Caroline’s own home, Hotspur House, which is just outside the rolling parkland surrounding the main house.
We will then have a talk about aristocratic jewels from the creator of the Downton jewels. He will show us the actual jewels used in the film, and there will be a chance to try them on!
For more details please send a message in the contact section. We can cater for up to ten. For smaller numbers, travel to and from Syon is also included.
