If your Downton Abbey obsession has spun out of control, like a scheme dreamed up by Thomas, or a love affair with a chauffeur, you might as well start shopping for stuff to go with your paper dolls. If a £7,900 day tour is a bit steep, here are some more reasonably priced alternatives to get you started.
