A bit about Lacock
Set in rural Wiltshire, the beautiful National trust village of Lacock is famous for its picturesque streets, historic buildings and more recently as a TV and film location.
A popular tourist spot, the village is busy all year round with visitors from around the world, soaking up the village atmosphere visiting the historic Abbey and Fox Talbot photographic museum and more recently to see where the Harry Potter, Wolf Hall, Cranford, Emma and Pride and Prejudice to name just a few of the films that have used Lacock as a film location.
Lacock is a great place to meet up with family and friends and spend the day. Along with our regular craft fairs supporting local makers, there are plenty of places to eat and shop you will be spoilt for choice. For details of what is happening at the Abbey/Museum please click HERE to go to NT Lacock.
The Abbey located in the centre of the village was founded in the 13th century and dissolved in 1539. Later, it became a quirky country house of various architectural styles within its own woodland grounds. It was a home for the Talbot family, including William Henry Fox Talbot 19th century, famous for his contributions towards the invention of the photographic negative. His amazing achievements are celebrated in the Fox Talbot museum on the ground floor and the gallery above holds special exhibitions throughout the year. Thoroughly fascinating and something you should not miss. heck out further details on the National Trust website HERE
