Downton itself is an attractive village, with many attractive, ancient cottages lining its main street and village green. The Cuckoo Fair at the beginning of May is a well known event. The village provides for local shopping needs while the Cathedral city of Salisbury is a fifteen minute drive away and Southampton about half an hour.
