Reasons for trip

Culture/Sightseeing

Lacock Village dates from the 13th century and is near the town of Chippenham in Wiltshire. There are many stone, lime washed and half-timbered houses. The village has been in so many period film and TV productions it is known for “Screen Tourism”. Most famous of these is Pride and Prejudice, Cranford, Moll Flanders, Emma, Larkrise to Candleford, Downton Abbey, Wolf Hall and Lost in Austen. As you walk around it certainly feels like taking a step back in time.

The whole village plus Lacock Abbey and the Fox Talbot Museum is owned and managed by the National Trust. We visited both while there. It could be described as quintessential with three public houses plus gift and independent shops in medieval streets. Both St Cyriac’s church and the Tithe Barn are 14th century Grade 11 listed buildings.

We did of course stop for tea and cakes at the Stables cafe before continuing our journey. The village is signposted off the A350 south of Chippenham, so is easy to find for travellers. This is not our first visit and I’m sure it won’t be the last.
