Families at Lacock

There are lots of things at Lacock for families to enjoy. The Abbey grounds are perfect for exploring all year round, with streams, gargoyles and a Botanic Garden all waiting to be found. What will you discover?

Look out for games, trails and events throughout the year. Many are free, though normal admission charges apply. You can download some of our trails or spotter sheets before you arrive, or ask at Visitor Reception.
