Plan your group visit to Lacock Abbey, Fox Talbot Museum and the village. Whether you want to spend a whole day here or are planning a stopover on a tour around England's South, Lacock is a must-see.

Lacock Abbey

Discover the atmosphere of 800 years of history in one fascinating building. Your group can choose to visit the whole abbey (cloister and rooms) or opt to simply explore the medieval cloister and see its beautiful architecture.

Groups must book in advance if planning to visit the abbey during their visit.

Lacock village

The picture-perfect village has plenty of shops, food outlets and buildings full of character to explore.

Lacock is a real, living community, which is what makes this place so special to visit. TV shows such as 'Downton Abbey', 'Cranford' and 'Pride and Prejudice' were filmed here too.

Abbey garden

You can have a wonderful day in the grounds of Lacock Abbey, there is something to see all year round and it offers inspiration to garden enthusiasts.

Some seasonal highlights are the carpets of snowdrops and crocus in spring, the rose garden in the summer and seasonal colours in autumn and winter.

Fox Talbot Museum

The museum is a must if you're already interested in photography, and well worth a visit, it tells the story of the birth of photography here at Lacock Abbey.

The upper gallery features a programme of fascinating exhibitions that change twice a year.
