A lovely little find in the countryside, the Wildlife Park at Cricket St Thomas is home to many stunning animals set in the English green. It has the feel of a private bestiary – which in a way it is. It’s small scale lends an intimacy with the animals that is often missed at larger zoos.
Lacock Abbey is a wonderfully building to wander through. Simple and managable in size, one can really get the feel of life here throughout all it’s different incarnations; from nunnery to WWII garrison. The grounds offer unspoiled views and images of English countryside that resound in the mind.
