Dating back to the 13th-century, Lacock village remains largely unchanged over the centuries and has many limewashed, half-timbered and stone houses. During the Middle Ages Lacock became a prosperous and thriving town through its wool industry. The village was well placed for communications, sited as it was on the 'cloth road' from London and the River Avon, which gave access to the sea at Avonmouth near Bristol.
Longleat Safari Park
Longleat Safari Park opened in 1966 and was the first drive-through safari park outside of Africa. The park is situated in the grounds of Longleat House, the home of the 7th Marquess of Bath and a tourist attraction in its own right. The safari park was the first of its kind anywhere in the world and was considered to be a massive breakthrough in the way in which captive animals were kept, with the animals roaming freely and the visitors in cages (cars).
