The history of Lacock Village is very much linked to that of the Lacock Abbey. The village dates back to the 13th century. Lacock developed a thriving wool industry during the Middle Ages.

Most of the houses are 18th century or earlier in construction. There is a 14th century tithe barn, a medieval church, and an inn dating from the 15th century and an 18th century lock-up.

Together with the Abbey, the village was given to the National Trust in 1944 by Matilda Talbot.
