Accommodations in and around Lacock

 Several bed and breakfasts in Lacock and the vacinity are within walking distance of the wrokshop and all of Lacock's attractions.  If you have a car, you can look farther afield.  There are lots of hotels in Bath, which is less than 15 miles away and can be reached by train from Chippenham, which is 3 miles from Lacock.  Taxi fare from Chippenham to Lacock is about £9 each way.  There is hourly bus service from Chippenham to Lacock (except Sundays, when there is no service).  

 Please be aware that most B&B's in the area have only a few rooms and Lacock Village is a popular tourist destination during the summer.  Once your registration is confirmed, it is best to book your lodging right away.
