Airbnb are giving fans the chance to stay at places you’ve always dreamt about…
Breaking Bad, Star Wars, The Jungle Book, Stranger Things… Airbnb are starting to make a habit of giving fans a chance to stay at places that they’ve always dreamt about. This October, you will have the chance to stay at one of the most elaborate locations that has been at the centre of one of the most successful shows in modern time – Downton Abbey.
Highclere Castle – the home of Downton Abbey – is now available for a once-in-a-lifetime stay. For one night only, fans can sleep in one of the Castle’s iconic bedrooms and get the opportunity to live like the Lord or Lady of a stately home.
During their stay, fans can enjoy an exclusive evening drinking cocktails in the Saloon followed by a traditional dinner with the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon in the State Dining Room, being waited on by Highclere Castle’s own butler. After dinner, coffee will be served in the Library before you retire to one of the Gallery bedrooms with an en-suite bathroom and views over 1,000 acres of rolling parkland.
Before departing the next day, fans can enjoy a delicious breakfast prior to a private tour of Highclere Castle’s extensive grounds. What’s more, they will receive a special gift from Lord and Lady Carnarvon so you can enjoy a little bit of Highclere Castle at home.
As a fan, you will get the opportunity to explore iconic rooms you know so well from Downton Abbey, such as the Drawing Room and the Library. For one night, you can follow in the footsteps of kings and queens and enjoy life as a Lord or Lady to celebrate the upcoming motion picture event, Downton Abbey.
Whether you’re looking for something to do with the kids, or looking to party – it’s time to start making your Halloween plans…
There are a bunch of really awesome things to do with your family and friends this Halloween period coming up. But, as usual, things get sold out super quick, so here are two of our favourites…
Potter buffs who dig the darker side of Rowling’s creation should head to Warner Bros. Studios in the the run-up to Halloween, where the eerier aspects of the film series are being explored. The Great Hall will be decorated with more than 100 floating pumpkins and the banqueting tables laden down with apples, candy and bubbling cauldrons. Visitors will be able to test their wand technique by battling a Death Eater in a special experience developed by combat choreographer Paul Harris, before taking part in a reenactment of an epic Hogwarts battle. Visitors will also see costumes and the sinister props that caused havoc for Harry and his clan during the movies, with a special focus on the unique, intricately-created Death Eater masks.
If you are into things that are a bit stranger, or should i say Stranger Things, then you have a brilliant option of either going with your family or friends to Secret’s Cinema’s Stranger Things fully immersive show, or you could party the night away at a Stranger Things party!
The party takes place at Proud Embankment, at a 750 capacity venue with 2 levels, incredible sound and spectacular lighting. Whilst Secret Cinema will allow you to explore the untold story of Hawkins.
In a secret London location, dive into a living, breathing story to experience your favourite moments from the Netflix original series. New and old tales will blend together in a thrilling collage of the greatest decade for music, fashion and film.
Travel back to the ‘80s as you step into the small town of Hawkins, Indiana. But don’t be deceived by its charming exterior. In a town built on secrets you may be surprised to discover a more sinister truth than you had ever imagined.
If you are looking for a fun place to eat, then you are in luck.
The Plastics are in town and are throwing a Halloween immersive dinner at Camden’s most instagrammable venue which is going to be soooooo fetch. The ladies have organised a 3-course meal with Halloween themed desserts and cocktails to match!!
Regina has set up a best-dressed competition and also hired a special magician/artist and fun games to play throughout the evening, Gretchen has somehow organised the halloween cocktails you will receive upon arrival, Cady has the burn books ready to spread the gossip and Karen is ummmm, is just going to let you know the weather for now. AMean Girls Dj will also be playing all the 90s hits to get the party really started.
Be warned though, on this day you are a part of The Plastics so Halloween attire has to be up to scratch or you can’t sit with them.
