Longleat

About

Longleat, nestled within 900 acres of Capability Brown landscaped grounds, is home to the UK’s original Safari Park, and one of the best examples of Elizabethan architecture, with an abundance of exciting attractions including Jungle Kingdom and Animal Adventure where you can get up-close to truly amazing animals.

Immerse yourself amongst Longleat’s incredible animals - with six and a half miles of drive-through experience, there’s plenty to look out for, from cheeky monkeys in the Monkey Drive-through, to majestic lions in the African Plains.

Jump on board the Jungle Cruise boat, where you’ll experience the thrill of sea lions as they swim alongside you, plus an unmissable opportunity to see magnificent gorillas, meet playful meerkats in Jungle Kingdom as they scamper around your feet and hand-feed gorgeous lorikeets in Monkey Temple, before exploring Penguin Island for an intimate encounter with these remarkable creatures.

You’ll be taken aback by the impressive Longleat House, where you can step back through over 450 years of history in one of the finest Elizabethan stately homes in the country.  As you explore, be sure to seek out and admire the fantastic collection of artworks, paintings, tapestries and furniture that have been collected over generations.

Longleat hosts many special events throughout the year, including the hot air balloon extravaganza, Sky Safari. If you’re visiting over the festive period, you’ll be truly enchanted by the ever-popular Festival of Light. The grounds come alive with colour and light as a display of giant Chinese lanterns take up residence across the park.
