Description

Voted ‘UK Family Attraction of the Year’ by the Good Britain Guide, Longleat offers a wonderland of attractions to suit all ages!

Set in more than 900 acres of ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped parkland with a further 8,000 acres of woodlands, lakes and farmland, Longleat combines the magic of the old with the marvels of the new.

As well as being the first stately home to open its doors to the public, Longleat was also the first place, outside Africa, to open a Safari Park. And, after more than 36 years, Longleat is still one of Britain’s most popular tourist attractions

From safari to stately home, mazes to murals and simulator rides to safari boats there's always something new to discover round every corner.

You can enjoy really close encounters with some of the largest, fiercest, cutest and strangest animals from around the world in the Safari Park. Drive yourself round the bend in the Longleat Hedge Maze, let the kids explore the turrets and rope bridges of the Adventure Castle plus a new indoor soft play area for the under fives. Check out the Blue Peter maze or pop along to meet Postman Pat and his friends in his very own Greendale Village!

Then take a tour of Britain’s friendliest stately home. Substantially completed by 1580 and now home to the 7th Marquess of Bath, Longleat House is widely regarded as one of the best examples of high Elizabethan architecture in Britain and one of the most beautiful stately homes open to the public
