SilverScreen Village

- Our scenic tour today begins with a visit to Lacock, a village much admired by film makers. Along with its Abbey, Lacock has played host to Cranford, Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter and The Other Boleyn Girl to name but a few! Our afternoon is spent in the "prettiest village in England". Castle Combe is another favourite with film-maker's the world over and has been seen in many productions. Doctor Dolittle was filmed in and around the village in 1966 and recently, the village had major roles in Stardust, The Wolf Man and War Horse.
