8. LACOCK Among the oldest villages in England, Lacock largely belongs to the National Trust which makes note of at least 17 'places of interest' in the location. It's a perfect spot for a day-long outing. There's much to be said about a village that is a breathing postcard. And did I mention there is a 'Harry Potter' and 'Pride and Prejudice' connection here? You can read more about this beautiful in my post 'Lacock Of Pride and Pottermania'. (Things to do - 15 Must-Visit Places in England #Part2)
Lacock Village - With cobblestone roads, old stone cottages alongside timber-framed homes, the village retains the old-world charm, making Lacock a popular shooting destination for period dramas. As you walk through the narrow lanes and cross High Street, a sense of familiarity will seep into your sense. You will recognise spots from television series like the BBC's production Pride and Prejudice, Downtown Abbey, The White Princess and of course, the Harry Potter film series!The village is dotted with shops that sell products ranging from the extremely commercial mementos to homemade jams and bakery goods. Don't let the thought of calories stop you from indulging yourself at these bakery shops. I didn't. I never do!
Lacock, for this and some other reasons, has been on my list of 'recommendations' whenever anyone pops the 'where to go in England' question to me.Among the oldest villages in England, Lacock largely belongs to the National Trust which is a "conservation organisation in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and the largest membership organisation in the United Kingdom (Wikipedia)."
