Another Thursday… another travelpost! Let’s go to Lacock today!
Lacock is an unspoilt little village in the county of Wiltshire, situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Walking through this quintessential English place, easily takes you back a century or two. Everywhere you look, you can see lovely cottages and picturesque streets…The National Trust is responsible for a lot of the houses located in Lacock. They try to maintain the rich tradition and heritage… no wonder Lacock has been used as a film location on many occasions: cast and crew from Harry Potter, Downton Abbey, Pride and Prejudice and many more period dramas have settled down in here in Lacock to make use of its charm and beauty.
