Downton Abbey costumes go on display in Bampton

Get up close and personal with the Crawley's clothes at West Ox Arts Gallery in the Oxfordshire filming location for Downton village


Dream of getting close to Lady Mary’s dresses? Or being in touching distance of Lord Grantham’s whiter-than-white starched shirts?


Who doesn’t fancy a sneaky rummage through Violet Crawley’s wardrobe?

Now, good people, is your chance. A selection of costumes from the hit ITV period drama are going on display at the West Ox Arts Gallery in Bampton, Oxfordshire. The gallery will be hosting our favourite Downton characters’ costumes from 2pm tomorrow until Sunday 29 September. Admission is just £5, so what are you waiting for?

Downton Abbey returns to ITV this autumn for an eight part series, followed by a Christmas special.
