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

The abbey itself is worth taking your time and enjoying the history. NT has done an excellent job preserving the different aspects of this property. I will review the Fox Talbot museum separately.
