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.

Completed in 1905 after 54 years of construction, St. Stephen’s Basilica was named after the first King of Hungary (975–1038); whose mummified right hand is kept in the reliquary. The building is an absolutely magnificent carved work of art. The dome is 96m high and filters daylight in a magical way, reflecting in guided textures the detail of the mosaics. Absolutely breathtaking.
