It's going to be a dreadfully long time until the third season of Downton Abbey returns to PBS next year. So what's a fan of this absolutely smashing posh period drama to do? Why, take a stroll through English rose gardens finished with a spot of tea, that's what. Or how about a wee bit of shopping at one of the best British clothiers right here in LA? Yes, darling. There is a way to get your Downton Abbey fix without having to watch every single episode another 20 times until the new season hits the small screen. Here's a mini guide on how you can live it up Crawley-style around Los Angeles. Pinkies up!

This is the kind of place that would impress even the Dowager Countess of Grantham, that sassy septuagenarian who makes old age seem (almost) appealing. There's the impressive library, notable artwork and gorgeous gardens, including a three-acre rose garden replete with its own tearoom. The afternoon tea buffet is a bit bourgeois, but we are in America, darling. Kind of impossible for us to pass up on the all-you-can-eat-and-drink experience.
