After an absence of nearly four years from our televisions, the September 13th release of Downton Abbey has put the trials and tribulations of the Crawley family firmly back in the public consciousness.
It’s also reignited interest in the rolling countryside and sumptuous settings against which the family’s dramas are played out – and nowhere better exemplifies this than Downton Abbey itself, which in real life is Hampshire’s Highclere Castle.
Recognised as one of the finest chauffeur companies in the world, iChauffeur (ichauffeur.co.uk) offers clients the opportunity to visit the striking 5,000-acre estate in one of the company’s high-end vehicles, ranging from a Mercedes S or V Class to a Range Rover Autobiography. After two hours exploring the Castle, clients will continue on to the quintessentially British Cotswolds, famed for charming honey-coloured buildings, antiques and country pubs, and then on to Blenheim Palace for a tour of its interiors and grounds.
For clients wanting an experience even more immersive and exclusive, iChauffeur can facilitate a private reception at the castle for up to 15 people, with drinks and canapes served in its elegant surroundings. A senior member of the Royal Household will escort guests around the property on a private tour, allowing genuine ‘behind the scenes’ insights into the castle, not only as film set, but also as an historical site and working estate.
With its global network of expert drivers and luxury vehicles, iChauffeur continues to redefine experimental travel. Each experience is hosted by a fully qualified and professional iChauffeur driver, who boast expert local knowledge into each region, delivering the utmost in discretion and service. Flexibility is also key to the offering, with clients able to tailor bespoke tours, adding elements to itineraries according to their own interests.
