Victoria and the Crown via Manchester

Victoria and the Crown via Manchester

As ITV’s ‘Victoria’ has been filmed exclusively in the White Rose county of Yorkshire, it makes perfect sense for this York-based on location experience to start with a non-stop flight into the northern gateway of Manchester.  Tour highlights include:

  • A special guided walking tour of York that concludes with Choral Evensong in York Minster
  • A Gaslight and Riots tour of Castle Howard which was also the location for the filming of Brideshead Revisited
  • Privately owned Newby Hall, famous for its award-winning gardens where you’ll be spell-bound by the Dollshouses Collection and Giles Brandreth’s Teddy Bear Collection
  • A special tour of Beverly Minster, used for the Westminster Abbey Royal Wedding scenes
  • English Afternoon Tea at privately owned Carlton Towers which doubled as Windsor castle
  • An upstairs/downstairs tour of Harewood House and a viewing of the costumes used in the TV series
  • A tour of Ely Cathedral which doubled as Westminster Abbey in The Crown
  • A River Thames cruise to Greenwich to discover many roles played by the Old Naval College and the stylish Art Deco Eltham Palace in the Crown
  • A visit to Kensington Palace, Queen Victoria’s childhood home where there’s also a special exhibition on Princess Diana

For August and September departures visits to Buckingham Palace will be included.
