Chris, who plays Kurt Hummel in the hit musical TV show, made sure to take pictures at all of his stop-offs and has shared them with his fans on Twitter.

Posing outside the famous Highclere Castle in Hampshire, which is used for filming Downton, Chris couldn't have looked more excited. He simply commented: "Breathe!"

Chris biked his way to Buckingham Palace

He seemed seriously happy when he visited The Mall in London by bike too, before heading up to Buckingham Palace. "Biking by Buckingham! #RoyalSelfie," he added.

Chris also travelled to Stonehenge in Wiltshire and took a pretty nice picture of the famous landmark from a distance. He joked: "This old thing ;)"

Our favourite holiday snapshot, however, is a collage of photographs Chris put together after doing the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, which is in Watford, Hertfordshire.

While there, Chris went behind-the-scenes of the Harry Potter movies and got to visit Hogwarts, Harry's house and even fly on a broomstick.
