Stop At: Lacock Abbey, Lacock SN15 2LG England

Lacock is an enchanting National Trust village, with views of Lacock Abbey. It consists of buildings dating from the 13th and 18th centuries and was once a prosperous woollen town but now it seems like a village trapped in time. There has been no major building here in the last 200 years so you really feel as if you’re stepping back into English history.

Lacock is a favourite film location for productions such as Pride and Prejudice and more recently, Downton Abbey (second episode of final series). The Abbey was also used in the filming of the first two Harry Potter movies.

N.B.This does not include entrance to Lacock Abbey.
