The castle will launch the tours, along with new royal afternoon tea experiences on selected dates from March, offering an insight into the show’s links to the castle.

Olivia Colman can be seen in the current season taking dinner in the State Dining Room and also filming key scenes in the Elizabeth Saloon, considered the most grand room in the castle.

The afternoon tea experiences will take inspiration from The Crown, allowing visitors to have tea in the State Dining Room, one of the many other locations used in the historical drama.

A special preview event for organisers is being offered on 3rd February to sample the afternoon tea experience and a brief tour of the castle and gardens.
