Some interior sequences in the film "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" were filmed at Lacock, including the cloister walk where Harry freed Dobby.

Lacock Abbey, dedicated to St Mary and St Bernard, was founded in 1229 by Ela, Countess of Salisbury, as a nunnery of the Augustinian order. Following the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the mid-16th century, Henry VIII sold it to Sir William Sharington, who converted it into a house, demolishing the abbey church.

Lacock Abbey and the surrounding village were given to the National Trust in 1944. The Trust market the abbey and village together as Lacock Abbey, Fox Talbot Museum & Village.
