“A must for all keen photographers”

Fox Talbot Museum at Lacock Abbey
Ranked #2 of 11 things to do in Lacock
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 June 2013

The museum tells the story of Fox Talbot and how he became fascinated by science and photography in particular. There are different photo exhibitions on show so you don't always see the same thing when you visit. Well worth a visit.

Thank Julie S

The Fox Talbot Museum is housed in a building in the grounds of Lacock Abbey. The museum is very interesting and not huge, so older children would find it interesting too. The grounds of the abbey are beautiful and the abbey itself is worth a look round......you can spot where scenes from Harry Potter films were set. it is surprising how many rooms you can look round. It's like a Tardis! The properly is run by the National Trust so there are helpful guides on hand to answer questions.
A few minutes' walk from the abbey is the village of Lacock, where numerous period dramas have been filmed. It is very picturesque and has lots of small, individual shops selling local crafts, etc, and small tea shops.
You can easily spend a whole day at the abbey and the village, including lunch, which we had at the Red Lion Pub in the village which was delicious.

Well worth a visit - but allow plenty of time as it's definitely worth seeing the whole village and the abbey as well whilst you're there. The museum is really interesting with plenty to see - it's on one level, with a special exhibiton area upstairs (there is a stair lift).

A lovely day out with the family. We had a lovely walk through the village stopping to have a look in all the shops. We didnt look around the abbey as we got there quite late and the latest time you can visit the abbey is 4pm so that is definitely planned for next time.
