Is London Calling? London is my absolute favorite city and if I was running around that town today, this is what I would be wearing!
On Sunday night I brewed some English tea and settled in for the season premier of Downton Abbey (many thanks to my boyfriend for pretending to be as excited as I was)! Needless to say, I’m not the only person obsessed with the Grantham family. The show has created plenty of tourism for Highclere Castle, the large English Estate the show is centered around. About 50,000 visitors made the pilgrimage to Hampshire County last year to see the home, and I’m sure just as many will go this year. If you’re planning a visit you can get more information here.
I definitely plan to visit on my next trip to London (it is supposed to be an hour-long ride from Paddington Station). The filming is actually done in the interior of the castle as well, so I know I will be checking out Lady Mary’s bedroom–the place where Mr. Pamuk met his fate after a scandalous rendezvous!;)
I put together a list of cute places to have tea in London here. Check it out if you are planning a trip soon!
