Highclere Castle aka Downton Abbey: An Easter Day Trip

Are there any Downton Abbey fans out there reading this post? I watched Downton Abbey a couple of years ago after my mom highly recommended watching the series. After the first episode, I was hooked and promptly binge watched all six seasons in 2.5 weeks.
