Downton Abbey, really known as Highclere Castle is the current real life home of the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon.  Downton Abbey a hugely successful drama series with over 11 million viewers in the UK and now shown in over 100 countries around the world has us all captivated.  What will happen to Branson now that Lady Sybil has died?  Will Mr. Bates every get out of prison?  Will Matthew be able to control expenses at Downton and will Lady Mary have a child soon?  So many questions that we are all on the end of our seats waiting for events to unfold.

Contessa’s is currently planning a trip to Downton Abbey in Hampshire in the Spring of 2014.  We would love to have 20 people take this tour to England with us.  Stop by Contessa’s and discuss details as they unfold.

In conjunction with the English traditions, Contessa’s will be serving our new imported British black tea every Sunday.  Stop by and have a chat with Contessa and all our Downton Abbey fans.
