If you’re looking for the perfect destination for a family walk this Easter, then why not try Lacock. This historic Wiltshire village is largely owned by the National Trust – and has featured in TV programmes and films that will suit most family members tastes!
Lacock is probably most famous these days as the location for BBC’s Cranford where Dame Judi Dench and her co-stars bring 19th century England to life. However, the village has taken part in many, many more film sets. BBC’s 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice used Lacock as Meryton where Lizzy Bennet and her sisters shopped. Lacock Abbey has also featured in films – such as The Other Boleyn Girl, and of course, it has been used as Hogwarts School interiors in the Harry Potter films.
A stroll around the village should only take half an hour, although there is plenty of countryside around should you want a longer walk – you’ll need OS Explorer Map 156. It’s also well worth a visit to the Abbey and museum – you can find out more about opening times and admission details on the National Trust website.
