Downton Abbey is set in the fictional Yorkshire country estate of Downton Abbey between 1912 and 1926 and it depicts the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their domestic servants in the post-Edwardian era—with the great events of the time having an effect on their lives and on the British social hierarchy.
