Longleat Safari Park packs in a whole host of wild attractions. On the Safari Drive-through you can brave the Monkey Mayhem and hunt for the resident wolf pack. You can also drive through Lion Country, Tiger Territory, the Deer Park, the Big Game Park, and Cheetah Kingdom. Hop out of your vehicle for a Walking Safari where you can get up close to some of the residents of the African Village.
In the Main Square you can explore the Hedge Maze on foot, run wild in the Adventure Castle, see giant otters and Cuban crocodiles, and watch gorillas play. You can jump onboard the miniature railway, visit the bat cave, explore the family farmyard, and enjoy the new Little Explorer’s Garden play area, which is inspired by native wildlife. There is also a new Koala Creek planned for 2019.
Longleat House itself transports you back to Elizabethan times through its fine 16th-century architecture. Meanwhile, its grand rooms and artefacts date from the 16th century all the way through to present day.
Heading outside, the immaculately-kept grounds surrounding the house include formal gardens, parkland and pleasure gardens. A shop within the house’s Victorian kitchens is Emma’s Kitchen, where Viscountess Weymouth celebrates more than 400 years of cooking and recipe creation at Longleat with her own selection of delicious treats created using the best local produce – and available for visitors to buy.
