Photographs from the expeditions of Monty Python star Michael Palin have gone on display at the Fox Talbot Museum in Lacock until September 23.

The 30 images captured by photographer Basil Pao, who has accompanied Mr Palin across the globe since 1988, include shots from trips to China and the Himalayas among others.

Roger Watson, National Trust Curator at the Fox Talbot Museum, said: “This a great collection of some beautiful images which anyone who has a keen interest in travelling would love to see. We are very thankful to Michael Palin and Basil Pao for their generosity in allowing us to exhibit these stunning images.

“Basil’s large, rich, colourful images bring you up close and personal with people and places throughout the far flung corners of the world.”

The museum is open from 10.30am until 5.30pm every day.
