Christmas at Lacock Abbey

A visitor looking at a Christmas tree in the Lacock Abbey cloister.

Enjoy a festive day at Lacock Abbey. Wander through the peaceful cloister to see beautiful community Christmas trees, follow our self-led family trail to help out the snowfolk who muddled-up their cracker jokes and visit on the weekend to experience a Victorian Christmas tree in the Great Hall.

Get into the festive spirit

Community Christmas trees fill the cloister 

See 26 magical Christmas trees in the abbey's beautiful cloister. This year's inspiration is a quote about whirlwinds of snow going round and round the cloister court during a snowstorm in 1836, so our tree decorations will be on a white theme.

A cracking Christmas trail 

The snowfolk have muddled-up their Christmas crackers and need your help finding the punchlines to their jokes. Follow the trail around the abbey grounds and village.
