Christie’s auction house just launched an online auction with the chance to win a night at Highclere Castle, where the popular series Downton Abbey is filmed.

The sale is part of an effort to raise money for the British Armed Forces in celebration of the centennial for the start of WWI. Highclere Castle was a military hospital during the Great War.

Twelve different experiences are up for auction—a dinner for eight in the Highclere dining room (bidding starts at $8450), an overnight stay in Lady Sybil, Lady Edith and Lady Cora’s bedrooms (bidding starts at $16,900) and even a private lesson from Highclere’s butler (bidding starts at $3,380) for those who fancy themselves more of a Bates. The auction will continue through Aug. 14.
