We went to Lacock Abbey and village today.It is a stunningly picturesque country house dating back to the 12th century. The village is amazing with timber framed buildings , and streets which have appeared in just about every historical film set in England . The Abbey featured in the first two Harry Potter films. It was the home of William Fox-Talbot, a pioneer of the photographic process.
If you go,you will not be disappointed .

We visited on 13th July 2014.
Staff all very helpful and friendly. The Abbey was really I interesting (even a 17 year old found it interesting) So much to look at. Gardens lovely and museum interesting.
Being a Sunday in July you expect places to be busy, so were prepared to wait a while to eat, but the staff at The Red Lion were helpful and efficient and found a table for us. The Red Lion was really busy, but we were soon served. The food was delicious. We had coffee later at the National Trust tearooms very nice.l The village itself is lovely with small shops. I would highly recommend going.

Visited this weekend, intending to see village and Abbey, only did the village, so many beautiful houses and shops to see, didn't have time to do the Abbey. Absolutely loved it. Locals very friendly with us endless tourists. Loved all the honesty boxes selling fruit/veg, books, plants/flowers. and homemade jams outside some of the houses. Go early to avoid crowds. Apparently the Abbey is wonderful, but after wondering around, having a morning Coffee, then fitting in lunch in a wonderful 16th century pub, didn't have time. Will return. This is a National Trust attraction, village obviously free but fee for Abbey to non members.

Look on the National Trust website for details. We found the abbey and house to be well presented and very interesting. The grounds and Fox Talbot Museum are well worth visiting. We felt that most of the grounds were open and accessible, and that the National Trust had opened up as much of the abbey and house as it could (unlike some private historic houses that we have visited). Well done National Trust.

A lovely period property that has been well preserved and is well presented.

Lots of great information helps bring the history of the property to life and the evolution of the property is well documented.

Thoroughly enjoyed our trip around the house and when combined with a walk and lunch in Lacock it makes for a lovely morning or afternoon.
