Lacock Abbey, Village and Fox Talbot Museum
Lacock Abbey, located in the centre of the village was founded in the 13th century and dissolved in 1539.
Later, it became a quirky country house of various architectural styles within its own woodland grounds.
It was a home for the Talbot family, including William Henry Fox Talbot 19th century, famous for his contributions towards the invention of the photographic negative.
His amazing achievements are celebrated in the Fox Talbot Museum on the ground floor and the gallery above holds special exhibitions throughout the year.
Wander through the Medieval cloisters, and 16th century stable courtyard, explore the furnished rooms and discover the 18th century Gothick hall.
There are lots of opportunities to bring the family or friends and join in with our regular seasonal events, activities and trails in the grounds.
