Discover The Real World That Inspired Downton Abbey with Our Collection of Books & DVDs


The dual worlds of Britain's great houses—the aristocratic lords and ladies who lived upstairs, and the footmen, maids, valets, cooks, and butlers who worked downstairs to keep the estate running—not only underpinned British society for centuries, they have also proved endlessly fascinating to Britons and Americans alike. Here you can explore the real world that inspired Downton Abbey, from stories of individual lords and ladies (some of them American) to servant's memoirs, some of which reveal that this world was not so rosy as imagined. But from these houses also came some lovely recipes, as well as magnificent architecture and grounds, and that singular English civility that has informed good manners around the world.
