The series is set in the fictional Yorkshire country estate of Downton Abbey. Based on the intervening years between 1912 and 1926. It tells of the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family. Also depicts their servants and social events in post-Edwardian Britain. Tells of the ultimate events of the era in history. Shows the effect on their lives and on the British social hierarchy in general.

Fictional Downton Abbey & Bampton Oxfordshire

The exterior of Highclere Castle in Hampshire was used for Downton Abbey. Highclere Castle provided the majority of exterior filming of Downton Abbey. Also provided a proportion of the interior shots. The Oxfordshire Cotswolds features in the everyday exterior scenes. Often seen and featured is the village of Bampton, which professes to be the village of Downton. One of the most used locations is St. Mary's Church. The Bampton village library doubles as the entrance to the cottage hospital.
