Welcome to Longleat


Longleat is regarded as the best example of high Elizabethan architecture in Britain and one of the most beautiful stately homes open to the public. The magnificence of the House itself is matched by the splendour of its surroundings; a spectacular mixture of landscaped parkland, lakes and formal gardens. In 1949 Longleat became the first stately home in England to open its doors to the public and a few years later opened the first safari park outside Africa - visitors can drive through eight enclosures where a wide range of animals can be seen, including: elephant, rhino, giraffe, monkeys, lions and tigers. Longleat has become one of the UK's most popular family tourist attractions - try not to lose your kids in the world's longest maze, made up of more than 16,000 English Yews; take the little ones for a ride on the miniature railway; or to meet some of the animals at Animal Adventure and let the kids loose in the Adventure Castle.
