In the early 1970s, the ownership of Tjolöholm Castle was passed on to the local municipality, having belonged to the same wealthy merchant family since it was built in the Arts and Crafts style around the turn of the last century. “For many years, the castle stood largely untouched, as the family that owned it didn’t spend much time here,” says deputy manager Elisabeth Elfström, adding that it still retains many of its original features, including the former workers’ cottages, a village hall and a church. This year, Tjolöholm hosts a fascinating new exhibition called Downton – For better or worse, in which costumes from the popular British TV series, Downton Abbey, are on display.
