Clooney and his new fiancee, British attorney Amal Alamuddin, took in the sights at Highclere Castle Thursday (May 22), reports US Weekly. The pair stayed in Surrey at a five-star hotel, which is about an hour east of the castle, and later spent several hours at the residence and grounds that stand in for the estate of Downton Abbey on the hit British period drama, which they had all to themselves.
A source says, “Highlcere is sometimes open to the public, but this day it wasn’t, so they were the only ones there. They spent a few hours there before they returned to their hotel.”
Later the pair dined with Amal’s mother Baria at the Berkeley Hotel in London.
