We live quite close to Longleat and visit once or twice a year. No two visits are ever quite the same and there is always something new or improved to enjoy. The Christmas 'experience', including the wonderful Festival of Light, has improved year on year. The Santa Express has to remain one of the best Santa visits there is and... More

Having visited Longleat a few times, find it very disappointing that although animals good too see and are interesting think it is very over priced and very expensive for a family day out. Restaurant very expensive with disgusting food. Shame it isn't all as good as animals. Would think twice about visiting there again.

My partner is a little bit animal LOCO so I booked to take her on a Safari VIP tour and let me start by saying what great value for money it is! You really get up and personal with the animals and the knowledge and experience the tour guides offer are second to none. You get to skip all the... More

To say that our family day out on 30/12/16 was a disappointment, would be an understatement. We booked six weeks ago and visited the Safari Park in the morning, as advised. This took over 4 hours and we were stationary in the lion enclosure for over 40 minutes owing to the fact that the whole area was gridlocked. When we... More

Absolutely brilliant. Myself and two of my daughters were taken around by Cara and Michele who made it a very enjoyable day.

Went on the 2/1/17 on the way to Centreparc. Drove through the Safari park first, it was busy but the traffic flowed ok until we reached the Lions, this must off taken us apx 1 hour to get through, but this is practically the last bit off the park. We avoided the Monkey enclosure as we did not want any... More

We went Jan 2, the park was heaving, we took the bus around the safari as I didn't want the monkeys wrecking my car! This was a good move as a Seat car lost a rear wiper, and another car lost the rubber trim around their windscreen. The lady bus driver was informative and entraining which was just as well... More

We visited 29th December and obviously expected it to be busy. We have been twice before on previous years and had a great time HOWEVER I now feel they are letting in too many people. Our day was spent doing nothing but queue. It took 4 hours to do the safari which took up most of the day with traffic... More

Longleat_Resort, Manager at Longleat, responded to this review

Good morning, We’re glad to hear that you’ve enjoyed previous visit to us but are sorry to hear that your most recent trip was so disappointing. After the success of last year’s event, we were expecting the Festival of Light to be very popular and did put measures in place to assist with crowd control. For instance, throughout the Christmas... More

We came here after a recommendation from a work colleague who had been to the festival of light and we were not disappointed! Visited on 2nd January, our satnav took us on a wild goose-chase but we eventually found the entrance. Got through the queues easily, as we had prebooked online, and followed the convoy of cars to the massive... More

Excellent visit to Longleat. Lots of animals to see throughout then safari and it was excellent to see the rangers doing their jobs efficiently. Have wanted to visit the Festival of Light for ages and finally made it this year and WOW! It was certainly worth the wait, so pretty and excellent attention to detail. Well worth a whole day...
