You will never believe how much the sprawling Crawley family estate would be worth

Downton abbey follows the lives of the Crawley family and their friends at the turn of the 20th century. The series, which takes place in a fictional Yorkshire country house, brings enough drama to keep fans interested. Still, the tuning helps a bit too. The huge estate sits on acres of magnificent property and is too large to comprehend. Can you guess how much the fictional abbey would cost if it was real? The numbers have been crunched.

Where is “Downton Abbey” filmed?

While the period drama is fictional, the estate that serves as the Crawleys’ residence is a real castle. Shots of the abbey are shot at Highclere Castle in Hampshire, England. When Downton abbey is not filmed on the property, it is a working estate and serves as the base for Lady Carnarvon and the Earl of Carnarvon.
