We got to the Abbey at 4pm with last entry at 4.15 so it was close. We knew that some scenes from Harry Potter were filmed here but had no idea how many other productions were also filmed in either th... read more »

A special place plenty of history and modernity. Walking around the gardens in autunm is wonderful. Maybe the abbey would be restored a bit.
I have spent many wonderful times in the Abbey and village with my wife and family. Now we have a child, it's even better - such a picturesque place to show him as he grows up. There is a car park for the village, however, blue badge holders can park outside the abbey welcome centre, which is much closer.
Having recently visited lacock abbey with my wife and 8 year old son I was very pleasantly surprised with our experience, the national trust staff were all very welcoming and told us all we needed to know, there were plenty of things to keep our son occupied such as treasure trails and the mouse hunt, you can go at your own pace here and enjoy the tranquil surroundings, the village is literally across the road from the abbey and has a village pub and tea room
Really nice NT property and grounds, take some time to walk around the village too!! The Iceland photographic gallery was great too! Car park is £3 for the whole day or free for NT members with a parking sticker
An interesting property, with its mixture of medieval Abbey and subsequent additions as it morphed into a Manor House (with added interest for Harry Potter fans). Lacock Abbey also includes the Fox Talbot museum, a small but somewhat interesting museum for those with a photographic bent. The grounds are relatively small, but with some pleasant woodland and lovely views of the River Avon. Beyond the property, there is much more to see around the village of Lacock, which feels like an extension of a National Trust property. There are some lovely shops, pubs and tea rooms to be found, all a short walk away, and including a National Trust café and a shop. Tucked down a side street (turn left just by the church) you'll find an interesting ford that's worth the short diversion to take a quick look. There are also some lovely walks around the village, including a walk from Lacock to Chippenham along the disused Wilts and Berks canal.
Fascinating place to visit, particularly if you have an interest in photography. Worth setting some time aside to explore the village too.
