With featured events throughout the year, the UK’s original and number one safari park is the place you can visit all year round.
Are you ready for the adventure of the safari drive-through? Visit the world-famous Lions of Longleat, explore the Wolf Wood, meet Anne the Elephant and test your nerves with Monkey Mayhem. With lots to see and much more to explore, the safari offers a taste of the wild in Wiltshire. Make sure you set aside about 1.5 to 2 hours
There is also plenty to see outside of the car in the main area near the magnificent Longleat House, seat of the Marquess of Bath. With crocodiles, koalas, bats and even gorillas as well as play parks, little (or big!) explorers will love spending time here as well as riding the miniature railway, or taking a cruise to feed the seals.
With plenty to do, make sure you take some time to explore the house and grounds itself. The grand rooms and beautiful corridors will take you back in time to the splendour of Elizabethan architecture, completed by Sir John Thynne in 1580 (and The Rolling Stones played a gig on the main steps in 1964!). The grounds surrounding the house are a visit in themselves, with 1,000 acres of landscaped gardens by Capability Brown. With parklands, formal gardens and pleasure gardens as well as the famous maze, with nearly two miles of hedges, you can literally get lost in the beauty of it all.
Book your tickets with the Information Team or online direct from Longleat and let the adventure begin . . .
Longleat is probably best by car! It’s easily accessible this way and usually only takes about 30mins to get there (13.3 miles). As this is a destination attraction, there is plenty of parking…and what’s even better than that? It’s free!
A 12.9 mile, 1hr 15min and an uphill cycle will take though some scenic villages and into Longleat. Don’t worry, you won’t miss out on the safari if you chose to cycle as there is a bus in the park that takes you around.
By Public Transport
There is pubic transport from Trowbridge to Longleat, however it does take about 2.15hoursto get there and isn’t always straight forward.
We would recommend using Traveline for train times please be aware that you would need to take a taxi or bus from Warminster Train Station to get to Longleat.
We would recommend using ConnectingWiltshire for the bus timetables and routes. When taking the bus to Longleat, please be aware that there will still be a walk to get you to the Park.
