What's on

This spring we've got some great photography for you to discover. Earth and Sky in the Fox Talbot Museum takes you on a journey through the universe, while the winning photographs of the International Garden Photographer of the Year competition will be displayed in the Botanic Garden in April and May.

Time for a walk

At this time of the year the garden changes constantly and you can discover something new every week.

At the moment you can see snake's head fritillary, cherry and apple tree blossom, and early wild garlic in the grounds.

It's time to play

There are plenty of things to see and do out in the abbey grounds. Walk, run and jump through the woodland garden and uncover places to play and explore. We'll get your imagination going, the rest is up to you.

Family trail

There is always a fun self-led family trail to do at Lacock Abbey. Sometimes they take you on an adventure around our woodland garden; sometimes they take you through the village. Pick up your free trail at Visitor Reception.
