Check out these tips on how you should prepare for the three day binge watching session:

1. Make sure you have the right outfit. Fashion and comfort are a must! Find something that can go from an evening constitutional, to evening chic. Looking for some inspiration? Check out our Downton Abbey board on Pinterest.


2. Set the table and throw a historically accurate Downton Abbey party. Check out this post from Buzzfeed for some great tips.


3. Play a game. These Downton Abbey BINGO cards are perfect for a binge watching party. Print out the cards and award your winners with some Downton Abbey themed prizes.
