The Cloisters in Lacock Abbey

A few weeks ago I went on a day out to Lacock for my Dads birthday.  Lacock is a quaint little village in Wiltshire.  The village is owned by the National Trust meaning its unspoiled appearance attracts many visitors a year. It is well known for its Abbey which was founded by the Countess of Salisbury and established in 1232. The village is full of beautiful buildings including a Tudor courtyard, the manor and little cottages filling the village. During the dissolution, the Abbey and estate were sold and passed onto the Talbot family by marriage who later gave it to the National Trust in 1944. 

The village and Abbey are also famously used as a location for filming. Where the village is kept in mostly original condition with no street lights and lack of modern features; it is the perfect location to film historic films and television shows. One of the most famous films that have used the beautiful setting is Harry Potter. They filmed scenes on location here during the production of the films 'Philosophers Stone', 'Chamber of Secrets' and 'Half Blood Prince'. As well as the interesting history and amazing architecture, being a Harry Potter fan is what also drew me to this historic place. The Cloisters around the abbey are easily recognisable as being used in the films and The Chapter House in the abbey was used as the original location for the Mirror of Erised in the first film.

I would definitely recommend visiting Lacock and the abbey if you're in the area or fancy an interesting day out.

Where's your favourite place to go on a day out?
