Lacock Abbey Sorcerer's Shield family trail
Witches and wizards, do you have what it takes to join the Lacock Abbey sorcerer's shield? Before we let you into our world, you need to find out which of our four shields you belong to. Will it be Knatchbull or Talbot, Thynne or Boyle?
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
This autumn, we're celebrating 20 years since J.K. Rowling's first Harry Potter novel was published. The cloister of Lacock Abbey was used as a film set in the first two Harry Potter films, standing in for the corridors and classrooms of Hogwarts School.
To help us decide which shield you belong to, you will need to pass the tasks set for budding witches and wizards. Decide who your magical sidekick would be, what your signature spell is and how you would like to magically travel.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission or
- Standard admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
