Event: SU Trips - Lacock and Castle Combe

Saturday 25 March 2023 at 9am - 5pm

Lacock and Castle Combe

Join us for a day trip to beautiful Lacock and the Cotswold Village of Castle combe

Start the day with a visit to beautiful Lacock in Wiltshire, home to the Lacock house, museum and gardens

The quirky country house with monastic roots and original medieval cloister, was once home to William Henry Fox Talbot, a photographic pioneer.The Fox Talbot Museum explores the history of photography, and Lacocks role within it, and hosts changing photography exhibitions.

 After visiting the house, take a walk around the village, nothing has really changed in over 200 years. Some of 'Harry Potter and the philosopher stone (and the half blood prince) was filmed here, along with Fantastic beasts, Downton abbey and the 2017 adaptation of 'Beauty and the beast'.

In the afternoon we head to Castle Combe, once named 'the prettiest Village in England'.

Castle Combe has featured regularly as a film location, most recently in The Wolf Man, Stardust and Stephen Spielberg’s War Horse. It was also used in the original Dr Doolittle film.

 The village has a rich history and the houses are made up of the honey coloured Cotswold stone, typical for a village of this area. Stroll along the village to the bridge and you’ll not only enjoy the views but may be able to purchase homemade cakes, sweets or bunches of flowers from outside the locals’ houses. Stop at the bottom of the village by the bridge and enjoy a great photographic moment too.
