Lacock Abbey

Lacock Abbey & Historic Village

We travel to the National Trust village of Lacock in Wiltshire to view the medieval abbey, turned family home and the birthplace of photography. The picturesque village and 13th century abbey were given to the National Trust in 1944 by the Talbot family. The 15th century inns and cottages create a traditional backdrop for many period films, and even Harry Potter!

Lacock Abbey bears testament to a legacy of almost 800 years of past owners with sophisticated taste, who sensitively turned it from a nunnery into a quirky family home, furnished with well-loved mementoes and furniture.

The Fox Talbot Museum celebrates William Henry Fox Talbot, who created the first photographic negative and established this as a birthplace of photography.

Refreshments can be purchased in the village's Stable Tea Rooms.
