Longleat, Warminster

4.4
Situated on the grounds of an Elizabethan mansion, Longleat features a collection of over 500 animals, sheltered on 3,642 hectares (9,000 acres) of Wiltshire countryside. Opened in 1966, this site was the first drive-through safari park outside of Africa. Unlike most other wildlife sanctuaries, at this location the animals roam freely, while the visitors stay within the comfort and safety of their cars. Drive through the park’s various reserves to observe wallabies, giraffes, camels, vultures, wildebeests, rhinos, elephants, pelicans, gorillas, tigers, lions, and Canadian wolves. The estate offers various special events and attractions, such as short cruises around the park’s lake, which houses a large family of sea lions. Check online for discounts and special offers. Plan your visit to Longleat and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Warminster sightseeing planner.

  • We visited Longleat to see the Festival of Lights in both December ‘19 and ‘18. To be clear, the Festival of Lights was absolutely brilliant. I will not review the frankly excellent facilities...  more »

  • We went as a family for the first time and we had such an amazing time. Did safari first as soon as we arrived and although we didn't see any tigers or hyenas, everything else was absolutely amazing! Bought deer food (£1 a cup) and it was well worth it! We went through the monkey enclosure too and it was so much fun! The thing we most enjoyed was the jungle cruise! Seeing hippos and gorilla's as well as the sea lions who you can feed (£1 a cup) and it was just such an extraordinary experience! All the facilities were amazing. Everything themed to perfection! Gift shop was amazing too. My personal favourite was also the bat cave! We simply had the best day! Happy Family here 😊
  • This is a very good day out, but it's total value May be limited. The concept is brilliant and the staff are great. It was very popular but with limited big attractions. I believe that the value did not match the cost for the day. The three main areas of interest were the central park, the historic house and the wildlife park. There were the obligatory shops and good cafes. Most of the exhibitions were scant. The kids' rides were not bad and there was a nurse available for medical issues. For the wildlife park, the views were breathtaking and the animals were housed adequately. The monkeys were a massive hit with about 100 of the cheeky chaps, climbing on cars and providing great opportunities for photographers. The deer and other types were sufficient. The exciting animals like wolves and tigers were 1-off of seen. There were about 20 lions in 2 groups.
  • We went on a very busy day and the excellent staff advised us to leave the safari park to later on which we did and was a pleasant experience to drive round , I missed out the monkeys as from a previous trip watched the buggers rip bits of a car..... be warned about the monkeys . Feeding the giraffes was brilliant as well and worth the £6
  • Fantastic. The safari is good and there is loads to see and do besides the safari. We did the river cruise and was well worth it, we saw a Sea Lion, seals and even Hippos. Very clean and tidy. Lots of food options. The House is well worth a visit as well and won’t disappoint. I would definitely go back if I’m ever in that area again. Would definitely recommend.
  • The best day out for a family bar none. Animals, great. Food, great. Queues, short. Staff, great. We visited the playground for the first time on our last trip and it’s a sight to behold. The kids would have been happy to spend the entire day there, it’s brilliant!
