Want an exciting Spring day trip? America's largest home on beautiful Biltmore Estate is showcasing more than 45 costumes from the popular PBS Masterpiece show, Downton Abbey. Biltmore House bears a striking resemblance to Highclere Castle (where the series was filmed) making it easy for guests to imagine how the Vanderbilts and their employees lived a century ago. This charming event will go thru May 25th, 2015 at the main house estate.
“The day-to-day running of Biltmore House was surprisingly similar to that of Downton Abbey,” said Ellen Rickman, Director of Museum Services. “Just like Downton has Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes, Biltmore had its own cast of fascinating characters. Displaying these fabulous costumes from the show gives us an unparalleled opportunity to delve into Biltmore’s stories.”
This exhibit is included with your estate admission to the Biltmore Hous located in scenic Ashville, North Carolina.
To complete your visit, be sure to visit the Biltmore Estate Winery while you are there! This year marks their 30th Anniversary and they have plenty to celebrate. Join the tour and enjoy wine tastings of many Biltmore Estate wines. Details here....
