Lacock is a must-see for all you Harry Potter fans out there, as many of the films were shot around this quaint village. But it’s equally worth visiting to spot the spring flowers – Lacock Abbey (National Trust-owned) is blanketed in snowdrops from late February, with daffodils emerging during March and April – adding an extra sprinkling of magic to this spectacular visitor attraction.
