“I wanted to create Bimble because there are so many places that I love and I didn’t have anywhere to keep them” explains Francesca Howland, Bimble’s Co-founder & CEO. “The platform works like Pinterest but for places. We make it easy to find, share and remember restaurants, shops, parks and much more, all around the world.”
“As huge Downton Abbey fans, we wanted to bring that world to life. As well as the filming locations, we researched restaurants, parks and homes that still exist from 1912-1929, the period covered across the series and the new film. They’re for anyone who wants to follow in the footsteps of the Crawleys – and their staff – for glamour, adventure and discovery.”
