‘Spanish Downton Abbey’ to debut in UK next month

Gran Hotel, the Spanish version of Downton Abbey, currently airs on Spain’s Antena 3 and will debut on 18 November on Sky Arts in the UK.

Set in 1905 in Spain, the series is about a man who visit the hotel to uncover the truth about his sister’s disappearance and falls in love with one of the hotel owner’s daughters.

What a beautiful couple!


Antena 3 has even provided an interactive guide of the characters and their relationships (i.e. marriages, engagements, friendships, enemies, etc.), as well as certain details about them (e.g. pregnancies, briberies, etc.). Just click on the characters with beige boxes and you’ll find a video clip on them.

Downton Abbey Cooks

Every week I host Tea Tuesday, a virtual tea party which was inspired by Christine, a follower who lives in France, who was curious about English tea traditions. The British may have failed miserably in other culinary areas, but they excel in the tea ritual. Each Tuesday, I dish on Downton Abbey and share other topical tea issues one might discuss at tea, served up with a tea treat with a history.

The Online Guide will be updated weekly as I add new recipes, so bookmark and return to whenever you are looking for tea history and new recipe ideas.
