We drive through the beautiful Wiltshire countryside to Stonehenge . This amazing monument was first mentioned as one of the wonders of Britain only seventy years after the Norman Conquest. It has aroused awe and curiosity ever since. This is your chance to experience it for yourself. During the journey to Stonehenge your driver guide will give you commentary on the sites we pass and there is also plenty of information for you to browse through in addition to an audio presentation. This allows you to make the most of your time at the monument. If English is not your first language there are audio presentations at the monument in all major languages (for details visit our page of other useful web addresses).
On a clear day we get a view of the Westbury White Horse.
Lacock National Trust Village
This wonderful village consists of properties which date from the 13th and 18th centuries. It was once a prosperous woollen town but now it seems like a village trapped in time. There has been no major building here in the last 200 years so you really feel as if you’re stepping back into English history.
If you’re interested in film locations Lacock has been used many times. It became the town of Meriton in the BBC production of Pride and Prejudice. The Abbey was also used in the filming of the first two Harry Potter movies. Other film credits for Lacock include Emma, Moll Flanders, Robin of Sherwood/Robin Hood, Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased), The Mayor of Casterbridge, The Other Boleyn Girl, Cranford, and The Wolfman.
The Abbey is not open during winter months. For more details of this National Trust property visit our “Other useful sites” web page.
Our journey time to Stonehenge is under 1 hour and we spend approximately 1 hour at the site. We spend about 30 minutes in Lacock National Trust Village.
