As we cast off old habits and start new ones, we’re setting goals for the year ahead in the gardens and abbey. Spring is well and truly underway at Lacock, with the appearance of snowdrops, crocuses and the sounds of birds shrilling through the crisp air. There's lots going on in the abbey, grounds and Fox Talbot Museum for you to see.
Throughout spring, the abbey grounds are carpeted with beautiful blooms; the snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils of early spring now give way to tulips, wild garlic and roses.
As the evenings begin to stretch out, the tranquil Wiltshire countryside around Lacock comes alive with the sound of birdsong and new colours emerging. The perfect setting for a relaxing stroll.
Lacock Abbey is a country house with monastic roots and Britain's birthplace of photography.
The Fox Talbot Museum explores the history of photography, while the South Gallery at the abbey reveals the famous oriel window.
With its central grid of four streets, Lacock today looks much like it did 200 years ago. Lacock is a quintessential English village with streets lined with timber-framed cottages and local shops.
