You are cordially invited to Downton Abbey…right here in Sandy Springs, GA! To help you plan your trip to Downton Abbey: The Exhibition, we’ve put together a list of everything you need to know before you go.
Everything you need to know about the Exhibition
Based on the Emmy-winning, worldwide hit television series, guests will join the beloved Downton Abbey cast of characters on an incredible journey through history and culture as never presented before, and truly experience life at Downton Abbey. Guests will be able to see real props and costumes from the show as they walk through immersive recreations of the iconic sets including the elegant dining room and Mrs. Patmore's kitchen.
Downton Abbey: The Exhibition is located at Perimeter Pointe in Sandy Springs, 1155 Mount Vernon Hwy NE, Atlanta GA. The exhibition will be open daily from 10am and 6pm (last entry at 4.30pm). Tickets are available now via www.downtonexhibition.com. Tickets are priced from $36 and children 14 and under (accompanied by an adult) receive free admission. VIP packages and private event hire options are also available
Perimeter Pointe is in the City of Sandy Springs, which is just north of Atlanta. Sandy Springs is accessible by two major highways that intersect within the city, Georgia 400 and Interstate 285. Sandy Springs is also 23 miles from the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and travelers can reach Sandy Springs by taking MARTA straight from the airport. Perimeter Pointe is also right next to the Sandy Springs MARTA station, so you can hop off at that stop and walk right to your destination.
Where To Stay
Sandy Springs is the perfect home base for exploring everything metro Atlanta has to offer. Not only will you be a short drive or MARTA ride away from Atlanta’s most popular attractions, but the beautiful parks and welcoming restaurants in Sandy Springs will also make it easy to settle in comfortably for your stay.
All of Sandy Springs’ 20 hotels are just minutes away from Perimeter Pointe, but there are three in particular that are less than a five-minute drive away: Homewood Suites By Hilton Atlanta Perimeter Center, Springhill Suites Atlanta Perimeter Center and Sonesta ES Suites Atlanta Perimeter Center.
Where To Eat
One of Sandy Springs’ newest restaurants, La Parrilla Mexican Restaurant, is only four minutes away from the exhibition. La Parrilla is a colorful, family-friendly, chain serving Mexican favorites like tacos, burritos and margaritas. The new location has a stylish and contemporary interior and a spacious patio that is perfect for fall weather.
For a memorable dining experience, make a reservation at The Select Restaurant + Bar. This dreamy Art Deco-inspired restaurant serves modern European dishes and has an Instagram worthy bar and conservatory. Their Miso Sea Bass and Bird of Paradise cocktail are standout menu items you don’t want to miss.
If you are in the mood for some more traditional British fare after touring Downton Abbey, head to Thos. O’Reilly’s Public House for classic dishes like Shepard’s Pie and Bangers and Mash. Though it is actually an Irish pub, you will still enjoy its cozy neighborhood tavern atmosphere and elevated pub eats. Want some tea? Head to Café Vendome to enjoy a London Fog Latte and indulge in some French pastries!
