Paddington Railway Station (meet by the main ticket office, which is near Platforms 1 & 2) | Map

Guided by Simon

Short version: This is some kind of wonderful. Lacock is the most exquisite village in England.

Longer version: No wonder Harry Potter, Pride & Prejudice and Emma were filmed here. We're talking a living village: just four streets, houses of every century from the 13th onward, the river Avon and a swabbling brook, Snaylesmead Meadow and Lacock Abbey. And as for Avebury, it beggars all description. The largest stone circle complex on earth, it speaks to us across the ages, speaks of a secret geometry and lost science, of an ancient time more clairvoyant and star-born than ours. And that's not to mention the white horses cut into the hillside or Silbury Hill, the largest Neolithic monument in Europe. It's the same age as – indeed, it is England's Great Pyramid.

WANT A PRIVATE TOUR TO AVEBURY & LACOCK?

If you can't make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Avebury & Lacock trips do think about booking one as a private tour. Sure, going private is more expensive* than going on the public tour but not over the odds. If you go private you can have the Avebury & Lacock Tour – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We'll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel on 020 7624 3978 or email us at london@walks.com and we'll set it up and make it happen for you. Makes a fabulous wedding present or birthday gift or anniversary outing. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that's special. Memories make us rich.  *Well, it's more expensive for an individual or a couple or a very small group. It isn't more expensive – indeed, a private tour is less expensive – for a group of, say, 18+ people.
