Tasteful toiletries 

All that drama surrounding Lady Cora’s soap would have been averted if she’d owned this vintage-inspired elixir bottle. Simply instruct your maid to fill the bathtub and wash those upper-class troubles away…

Cute cloche 

Bat your lashes at your suitors from under the brim of a hat like Lady Mary’s. Just remember to go upstairs before you dare take it off…

Classic crockery

Dream of Greek philosophers and advanced algebra while whipping up egg whites à la Daisy. Mason Cash have been making mixing bowls since the early 1800s and Mrs Patmore’s kitchen is genuinely stocked with them.

Grand games 

Choose to be a maid or a footman and navigate your way through the Abbey’s halls and corridors, completing tasks for Carson in a suitably speedy fashion. It’s a bit like Cluedo, if you swapped dead bodies and crime-solving for chores and chastisement.
