About Highclere Castle
Highclere Castle is one of England's most beautiful Victorian Castles set amidst 1,000 acres of spectacular parkland. The Carnarvon family has lived at Highclere since 1679, and the current Castle stands on the site of an earlier house, which in turn was built on the foundations of the medieval palace owned by the Bishops of Winchester for some 800 years.
Highclere Castle is set in 1,000 acres of sweeping parkland. This was designed for the 1st Earl of Carnarvon by the famous 18th century landscape gardener Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, and then developed by his son the 2nd Earl who like his father was passionate about the landscape. The estate is situated in varied topography and lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
