Downton Abbey Bids Farewell To North Yorkshire




The countdown is on to the last ever outing for the Yorkshire-inspired costume drama which has dominated Sunday night television for years.

Downton Abbey, set on a fictional North Yorkshire estate, first aired on ITV more than half a decade ago, and has gone on to win Emmys, BAFTAs and Golden Globes, as well as legions of fans.

But this Christmas Day will see the last ever episode of the drama broadcast, bringing the story of the aristocratic Yorkshire family to an end in 1925, more than a decade after the opening episode in 1912.

Throughout the series, Downton Abbey has been peppered with references to North Yorkshire towns like Ripon, Thirsk, Easingwold and Malton, and York has cropped up time and time again as characters visit the city or stop off on the way to London.
