The Abbey, located at the heart of the village within its own woodland grounds, is a quirky country house of various architectural styles, built upon the foundations of a former nunnery. Visitors can experience the atmosphere of the medieval rooms and cloister court, giving a sense of the Abbey’s monastic past.

The museum celebrates the achievements of former Lacock resident, William Henry Fox Talbot, famous for his contributions to the invention of photography.

On a day out in Lacock there is plenty for you to see and do. It’s the perfect place to spend a whole day.

On your visit you can discover the history of the Abbey and newly opened rooms, take a walk in the grounds and enjoy spring bulbs, summer borders and the greenhouse.

Wander through the historic village with many great shops and places to have a meal, and don’t miss the wonderful changing exhibitions in the upper gallery of the Fox Talbot Museum.

There is also a beautiful holiday cottage, so why not stay, experience Lacock life and explore the area?
