As a Harry Potter fan, the cloisters of Lacock Abbey are a must. It contains hallways and rooms which figure as classrooms in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series (e.g. Quirrel, Snape, Mirror of Erised, meeting Leta/Dumbledore). It wasn't the inspiration for the Great...More
Lacock looks like a film set and so it is. Cranford, Harry Potter, Downton Abbey, and I could spot several other film scenes too. But that's not why we came and I confess I knew nothing of Fox Talbot either before this !
The village is welcoming, and has plenty of shops as well as great buildings to see. The place is well maintained and had a great feel to it as we walked round.
The Abbey is amazing, thats a well maintained look into the past, and...More

It is difficult to predict how long anyone else would want to spend at the Abbey as it really depends on each individual’s interests. We spent several hours walking round the Abbey, having lunch, visiting the museum and exploring the village. I am very interested in history so we spent a long time in the house. Others may just want a quick walk through.
But potentially you could spend several hours in the abbey and the village.
