    Do you mean films or TV series?
    Films:Lovefilm.com gives a list of some of the best ones here:
    User collections - Best costume drama films | LOVEFiLM

    Otherwise, there is always Pride and Prejudice, Tess of the D'Urbervilles, Emma, Mansfield Park, Shakespeare in Love, Vanity Fair, Atonement, Elizabeth - The Golden Age, Northanger Abbey, The Way We Live Now, He Knew He Was Right, Wuthering Heights, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Lorna Doone

    Witch's list is excellent. I'd maybe add Persuasion (1995 version with Amanda Root and Ciaran Hind) and Sense and Sensibility (2008 David Morrisey) are among my favourites.

    My list may be excellent, but this is probably because I spend most of my life avoiding them!
    I don't like costume dramas much
