We visited primarily for the Lantern display but also went for a Safari. Wet weather dampened our spirits and a few of the animals we saw life of like the elephant. Lions were great. The Chinese Lantern display was wonderful and worth the trip. Wrap up warm and stay dry. Many food outlets some disappointing in their offering especially the... More

We visited the Festival of Lights at Longleat on a family recommendation. The light installations are exceptional, and a testament to the skill and hard work of the teams of Chinese craftspeople who create them. Once illuminated they are breathtaking. Unfortunately the rest of the Longleat experience rather let us down. I hadn't been for a number of years and... More

Bought this for my wife for her birthday and of course I had to come along to help her enjoy it! Stayed in a local B&B and so with accommodation, dinner and travel this comes to more than £1000 so it is a once in a lifetime experience. First tip - leave early - we were asked to be there... More

The safari park, animal enclosures were excellent but best of all was the Festival of Light starting at 4 p.m. In Nov & Dec. This was absolutely fantastic. Lots of Chinese displays all lit up in amazing colours. Had to be seen to be believed. It was just awesome

We managed to get in quite early as we were staying at Centre Parc and even then we had to queue it is so popular. A very switched on young man at the gate advised us that with the bookings made to suit our grandchildren it would be very difficult to find time for the safari, which we had worked... More

We took 3 Polish Visitors for the day They had only seen Zoos so were amazed to see animals roaming almost freely They loved the house even though only the Ground Floor was open - However the rooms were festively decorated and the fairy tale themes impressed children going round We were as impressed as our visitors over the Festival...

Travelled a long way from South Wales, we parked in the overflow car park after being around the safari park, which was very good. I know nothing can be done about the weather but the floor was a mud bath. We had booked the Santa train for 1.30, very pleasant experience Christmas music playing, children very excited, when we got... More

The house is gorgeous, well maintained with glorious ceilings and beautiful art..... This is not a boring, musty house, lots of characters for the children to interact with, Beautiful! We toured the safari park, wonderful sightings of the animals. All day and evening... More
