Longleat has been one of the UK’s best-loved attractions for over 60 years. It features an extensive Safari Park, is home to BBC Animal Park and CBBC Roar and also has over 20 fabulous attractions, including Penguin Island, The Jungle Cruise, Monkey Temple and Longleat House, one of the most stunning stately homes in Britain.
The first of its kind outside Africa, Longleat Safari Park first opened its gates to the public in April 1966, marking the beginning of a revolution in zoological collections that has spread all over the globe. 50 years on, Longleat Safari Park remains one of the country’s leading wildlife attractions.
Over the years Longleat has grown to incorporate a whole range of fun-packed family attractions, including Jungle Kingdom and the Adventure Castle – an amazing kid’s adventure playground and castle, the Longleat Hedge Maze and new attractions including the Rockin’ Rhino ride, Penguin Island and Ray Bay.
Set within 900 acres of Capability Brown landscaped grounds, Longleat House is widely regarded as one of the best examples of high Elizabethan architecture in Britain and one of the most beautiful stately homes open to the public.
