Cottages and inns dating back to the 15th century form a breath-taking backdrop, much admired by film makers, in the National trust village of 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 to William Henry Fox Talbot, famous for his contributions towards the invention of the photographic negative. His achievements are celebrated in the Fox Talbot museum on the ground floor, and the gallery above holds special exhibitions throughout the year.

Wander through the medieval cloisters as seen in the early Harry Potter films, and discover the 18th century Gothick Hall.

There are lots of opportunities to bring the family or friends and join in with regular seasonal events, activities and trails on the grounds.
