We went specially to see the Chinese Festival of Light display. We weren't disappointed as there were lots of display. The giant singing Christmas tree was also great. However the food at the Tropical Storm Cafe was a let down. I had susage and chips, and it was nearly £9, for luke warm cheap quality of susages. Chips wasn't that... More

We booked the Santa Special believing this would be the highlight of my three year old grandson's day out. His parents have an annual pass and he has already visited this year over fifteen times but still he had a wonderful day with new and old experiences. We started off in the Safari Park and stopped at the Lemur Walk,... More

When visiting Longleat in December 2014, the Chinese festival of the lights was AMAZING. Also I recomend going into the house on your visit as it has fantastic paintings and the architecture of the old house was astonishing. when I visited the park I had broken my leg. Some areas of the site are harder to access than others, but... More

I booked tickets to attend 2 months after opening to allow the crowds to die down and worked a treat. Went after work with a friend arriving 4.30pm. No trouble parking, crowds had died down and able to enjoy all the scenes spread around the grounds. Absolutely brilliant evening. As well as the artwork there is also a Chinese act... More

Charged twice; book online in the morning, turned up to receive our tickets and because I didn't receive a second email (even though the first email confirmed payment) the lady at the Guest Service booth was adamant I hadn't payed so I forked out another £69. Get home bank tells me to get on the phone to explain to Longleat.... More

Fantastic trip to see the lights. Amazing sculptures of animals, flowers and particularly the dragon made of porcelain plates. Some Chinese stalls selling hand made goods - especially interesting was the guy painting tiny bottles - on the inside! They've done A good job inside the house too with the Christmas decorations and the fairytale characters. All was great apart... More
