Subscribers were invited to join us for a special day with Alan Titchmarsh at Highclere Castle on Thursday 3 October, 2019. Widely recognised as the fictitious home of Lord Grantham in the ITV drama and recent film ‘Downton Abbey’, located near Newbury, it’s the real home of the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon. The day included a tour of the state rooms and gardens, a light lunch, talks and Q&A session with Alan. Guests were also treated to an exclusive Gardeners’ World Magazine goody bag to take home. Lady Carnarvon and BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine’s Editor, Lucy Hall were also in attendance.
