While touring the English countryside on our United Kingdom adventure, we found ourselves in the historic village of Lacock, a small community in Wiltshire known for its streets and buildings, which are preserved and unchanged from the 18th century or earlier. On our visit, it was pretty obvious why this place is used as a location for film and television productions.  We took one step off the tour bus and stepped back in time. Only the cars revealed the fantasy untrue. It was truly a place out of a storybook. 

Our short time in Lacock was (unfortunately) limited to a short walking tour along the four main streets. We viewed the historic buildings, including Lacock Abbey, the Tithe Barn, the village lock-up, St. Cyriac’s Church, and many small houses with their little doors. We learned about the antiquity, architecture, and daily life in the Middle Ages on this tour, and we both soaked up all the facts we could get out of our guide. Lacock offered quite the history lesson! And great ice cream!

If we're ever in the village of Lacock again, you’ll find us exploring Lacock Abbey (and other locations used in the productions of the Harry Potter films!), checking out the Fox Talbot Museum, or dining at The George Inn. We’d like to just hang out here awhile and enjoy the living museum.
