Lacock Abbey showcases various architectural styles, the result of its past incarnations as nunnery and country home. Renowned English scientist and inventor William Henry Fox Talbot lived here in the 19th century. The abbey's museum celebrates his achievements and contributions to the invention of photography. When you visit, don’t miss the changing exhibitions and artwork. The abbey's medieval rooms and cloister court have earned it roles in major movies, such as the Harry Potter films and "The Other Boleyn Girl".

  • Save your trip until the summer otherwise you’ll have a wasted visit. There is only one room open during the winter  more »
  • Went to see set of Harry Potter. Cried on arrival! Corridors and classrooms. Harry Potter areas were only abbey rooms open in November. Other areas were nice and scenic too. Nice walk in the grounds.  more »

  • Wow... This is a great place to visit. Plenty of room for children and animals too run around. Harry Potter & Wolf Hall have been filmed hear. A lot of great history about this house and the previous owners. As you exit, opposite is a great ice cream/little cafe and The Red Lion pub, which do great Sunday lunch. Just up the road is Lacock village. Enjoy...
