Highclere Castle (known to many as "Downton Abbey") is incredibly beautiful. My sister and I, along with about 20 other people, were very lucky to meet the Countess of Carnarvon, who calls this place home. She was extremely generous with her time, and spent half an hour speaking with us about life at the castle and discussing ideas for charity events. We also loved petting the adorable dogs. A very down to earth and kind lady. And an overall AMAZING experience through @vikingcruises.
