  • Enjoyable, with great grounds (particularly for summer jazz evenings!). Is a little on the pricey side (unless you're a member). Definitely worth a visit if you're a film buff - the cloisters have been used for many different films, including Harry Potter. There are also nice walks in the area - and some stunning sights when the surrounding land is flooded.
  • A beautiful historic Abbey, well maintained, stunning architecture. The Cloister have been used in Harry Potter and other films. Great place for a family day out lots to see. Lovely gardens & grounds if you enjoy walks. Close parking. Lots of shops, pubs & cafes around in the village. Very kind volunteers, helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommended.
  • There is so much history in that place. Almost 800 years old and I may say in a pretty good condition. The building itself is beautiful and Lacock village one of the most amazing places I've ever seen. It is a must to visit, if you ask me, and explore all the place has to offer. And of course honour the local stores and business.
  • Beautiful grounds, good cakes in the slightly overpriced café, on a sunny day this place is simply stunning. Great for a picnic. Good facilities. Nearby Lacock village also work a quick walk around.
  • Particularly enjoyed visiting the older buildings which survived the Dissolution (bakery, brewery in the courtyard) and parts of the Abbey itself. Representation of early to mid-20th century life in former living quarters was somewhat low key compared to other National Trust properties.
