Set in rural Wiltshire, Lacock village is famous for its picturesque streets, historic buildings and more recently as a TV and film location. Scenes from the Harry Potter films, as well as other period dramas for films and TV have been shot in Lacock.

Much of the village is owned by the National Trust which ensures Lacock retains a very special atmosphere, and a feeling of stepping back in time.

Lacock Abbey, located at the heart of the village within its own woodland grounds, is a quirky country house of various architectural styles, built upon the foundations of a former nunnery. Visitors can experience the atmosphere of the medieval rooms and cloister court, giving a sense of the Abbey's monastic past.

The Fox Talbot Museum in Lacock celebrates the achievements of former resident, William Henry Fox Talbot, famous for his contributions to the invention of photography. Fox Talbot created the first ever photographic negative in 1835, taken of a small window at his home, Lacock Abbey. The museum presents major photographic exhibitions and runs courses in early photographic techniques.
