Downton Abbey: The Exhibition, based on the beloved television show, transports you to post-Edwardian England, where the characters and the iconic house come to life. You’ll be immersed in the fascinating social history, culture, and some of the most memorable moments from the show’s six-season run.

“You’ll find there’s never a dull moment in this house”
-Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham


Downton Abbey: The Exhibition is now open through September 7, 2020 at Biltmore in Asheville, NC.

This fascinating experience pairs seamlessly with the real-life story of the Vanderbilt family, their friends, and staff as told through the magnificent rooms of Biltmore House, furnished with the original collection as it was during the family’s era.

Biltmore has adapted the exhibition experience and enhanced estate health and safety protocols in accordance with CDC guidelines, state and local mandates, and industry best practices. Due to these modifications, Biltmore recommends guests:

  • Purchase tickets in advance of their visit and plan to arrive early.
  • Allow for extra time to experience the exhibition as wait times may be longer than usual.
  • Bring their own face covering.

Advanced reservations are required to enter the exhibition to allow for social distancing. The health and safety of Biltmore’s guests and employees remain the company’s top priority.
