Animal magic at Longleat
Longleat’s historical house and grounds is a great place to visit for animal lovers everywhere.
Just a short drive away from Bath, Longleat is an oasis of greenery and nature, with 900 acres of amazing scenery designed by Capability Brown – the godfather of landscape gardening and a world-famous name in Victorian times.
But, of course, Longleat is most famous for being a Safari and Adventure Park that offers the chance to meet over 500 animals: domestic and exotic.
The main attraction at the Park is the exciting safari ride. This is an unforgettable journey where you’ll be accompanied by a huge menagerie of creatures of every shape, size and description. You’ll also see them in a more natural habitat than can be offered by a traditional zoo.
Lions, tigers, hippos, giraffes and elephants parade alongside deer and gorillas. If you’re a fish or insect fan, then you’ll also be well catered for with some fascinating opportunities to meet creatures you’d only normally encounter in a David Attenborough documentary.
For the most adventurous, there’s the VIP tour in a 4x4 for an exhilarating off the road experience.
Throughout the year, Longleat hosts a variety of great events and exhibitions. Christmas is a particularly exciting time to visit with its beautiful display of Chinese lanterns.
