Here is just a hint of the finery she wears...

bg, she mentions at the beginning that using a side saddle is much more dangerous, and then later she falls in the mud! But she picks herself up and gets back on her horse and continues the hunt...yay, Lady Mary!!

THE RITZ LONDON 110th ANNIVERSARY - HIGHCLERE CASTLE



We are delighted to announce an exclusive partnership with Highclere Castle or ‘The Real Downton Abbey’, the home of the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon.  Guests will enjoy a three -course lunch accompanied with wine in the state dining room at Highclere Castle.  An expert guide will give a private tour of The Egyptian Exhibition, (which explores the fascinating discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun by the 5th Earl of Carnarvon in 1922), followed by a selection of the magnificent state rooms. Guests will also be able to explore the grounds of the Castle.

Downton Abbey has developed a close relationship with The Ritz, beginning in the fourth season, when a young footman won a place at the prestigious Ritz Academy to receive training in the hotel’s kitchens and, culminating in the finale of series six, where key scenes were filmed in the beautiful Ritz Restaurant.

     Three-course lunch with wine in the state dining room at Highclere Castle

     Private tour of Highclere Castle, the home of the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon
     and setting of acclaimed British television drama Downton Abbey

     A private photographer and your own photographs to take home

     An exclusive Ritz Gift
