Join us for a fascinating morning in Bath and afternoon in picturesque Lacock.
We start with a free morning in Bath, where there are so many things to do and see. There will be the opportunity to visit the recently renovated Holburne Museum, with its own permanent collection of china, silver, needlework and paintings, and a special exhibition ‘Here and Now’ of the finest contemporary Tapestries brought together from such diverse countries as Japan, Australia, Norway, Latvia and the USA.
The Victoria Gallery has its own collection upstairs, which is free, and will be showing the summer exhibition of work by the Bath Society of Artists. More information about all of these will be given on the coach. After lunch our coach will take us to Lacock, about 45 minutes drive from Bath.
Entrance to Lacock Abbey and House, the Fox Talbot Museum (exhibition of the history of photography) and grounds are free to National Trust members, but please remember to bring your cards with you.
The entrance for non members, making up a group of 15 or more, is £11.50 per person.
Lacock Village, (location for many films,) with its shops, cafes and old houses, is a delight, and free to wander around and enjoy. We stay here until 5.15 p.m. giving everyone plenty of time to look around, and return to Bristol between 6.30 p.m. and 7.00 p.m
