Tour Overview

For the past three years, WFYI and Transcendent Travel have partnered to create unique travel opportunities for friends and members of WFYI. That’s why we are pleased to offer you the return of the popular “To The Manor Born” tour which we first ran in 2016.

Specifically, we’ll be touring the locations associated with Downton Abbey, Doc Martin, Wolf Hall, Poldark, and the home of Agatha Christie. This will be THE trip you won’t want to miss! If you ever wished you could get inside that High Definition TV screen and be there in person – now you can!

In partnership with Transcendent: Experience Based Travel, WFYI will be hosting you for 7 magnificent days as we travel between London and Cornwall making stops to see gorgeous interiors at Highclere Castle, Hampton Court Palace, and The Greenway Estate, as well as memorable exteriors in the villages of Bampton and Port Isaac. The WFYI and Transcendent team will be with you every step of the way to help make connections between our tour stops and the great British programs you’ve come to love on Public Television.

In between “scouting locations” with us you’ll have time for exploring shopping and dining on your own. But, we are really looking forward to spending a fantastic time together making that change from looking at someone else’s pictures and videos to making your own.




Highlights Include:

  • A visit to Highclere Castle as seen in Downton Abbey
  • A visit to gorgeous Port Isaac in Cornwall as seen in Doc Martin
  • A visit to the Greenway Estate, the beloved summer home of Agatha Christie in Devon
