Video: How Much Would It Cost to Insure Downton Abbey?
At some point in of our lives, we’ve all day-dreamed about what it would be like to live inside one of our favorite TV shows. But when does the experience get a little too real? Probably when you have to foot the yearly insurance bill for one of the most famous estates on the small screen: Downton Abbey.
While we understand it’s essentially one giant commercial for Erie Insurance, they actually took the time to break it down into a rather entertaining expose, you know, as far as insurance videos go.
After taking things like the size of the estate (300 rooms, gardens, stables, etc.), its overall opulence (gold-leafed walls, impossible to find craftsmanship, rare-book collection, etc.), the Abbey’s waitstaff and things like guest liability, Erie estimates that it would cost $10 million a year to insure this puppy.
