Nestled in 900 acres of Capability Brown landscaped grounds, Longleat 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, you can get up close to some truly amazing animals. Home to a six-and-a-half-mile drive-through experience, there’s plenty to look out for, from cheeky monkeys to majestic lions.
Jump aboard the Jungle Cruise boat to experience the thrill of sea lions swimming alongside you, experience an unmissable chance to see magnificent gorillas, meet playful meerkats, hand-feed colourful lorikeets and check out their family of penguins.
The impressive Longleat House is also worth a look, where you can step back through over 450 years of history in one of the finest Elizabethan stately homes in the country. Be sure to seek out the fantastic collection of artworks, paintings, tapestries and furniture collected over generations.
Longleat hosts many special events throughout the year, including their hot air balloon extravaganza, Sky Safari, and if you’re visiting over the festive period, you’ll be enchanted by the ever-popular Festival of Light, with giant colourful Chinese lanterns filling the park.
