Country house with monastic roots, once home to William Henry Fox Talbot
Set in rural Wiltshire, Lacock village is famous for its picturesque streets, historic buildings and more recently as a TV and film location.
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.
Have an adventure at Lacock this spring and join us for 50 things to do before you're 11¾. You could make a daisy chain, build a den in our woodland garden or hunt for fossils in the gravel paths around the abbey.
Ask the team at reception for more help and pointers when you arrive.
Download your very own Fox Talbot puppet, or pick one up at our visitor reception, to join the #TalbotChallenge. Send us a picture of Fox Talbot at your favourite place, from your garden to the Empire State building, using Twitter @LacockNT or Facebook. Let's see how far he will travel.
There are plenty of fun events on at Lacock Abbey this summer, including our midsummer evening picnic with great live jazz on 21 June and a day of medieval script making in July. And don't forget you can already book tickets for our great outdoor theatre season in August.
The new exhibition at the Fox Talbot Museum explores the relevance of black and white photography in the 21st century through a collection of beautiful images from six British artists.
Arrangements in Black and Grey runs until 22 October 2013.
