Invariably, when visiting an area on holiday, Mrs B drags me to some old house to wander round. A very peaceful and pretty village, the Abbey was an interesting place to visit, starting with a photography exhibition. Nice old house. Worth a wander

I had not been to Lacock Abbey for about 30 years and remembered little about it, apart from the archway leading to the abbey. We arrived early and were greeted by two friendly people in the car park. As the property was not yet open,...More
