We were at Longleat for the whole day, taking in the safari drive, house and Festival of Light. This was a wonderful day and we cannot say how wonderful the Festival of Light was, with the glorious displays, which were awe inspiring. Cannot recommend it enough

We traveled the 3+hours down to Longleat having seen the light festival advertised online. Staying just 10 minutes away meant we were able to get to the park just after it had opened at 10am. It was relatively quiet for the first two hours we were there which was great. Our two year old loved the indoor soft play area, the outdoor castle themed playground and the smaller toddler focused insect play area which we had almost sole use of.
The rocking rhino ride went down a treat (two trips round) as well as the farm where our daughter stroked the donkeys. We visited the animal handling section, holding the snake and tarantula was great and the handlers were very knowledgeable. The bat cave was a fun experience, the butterfly house was quite underwhelming (time of year perhaps) but the walk through bird avery was excellent. the £1 pot of nectar was worth every penny for the hands on experience.We enjoyed the walk through meerkats and lemurs too.
The safari was excellent, being handed the CD so our journey through had commentary was a lovely touch, and seeing the destructive monkeys and the tigers and lions up close was a real highlight.
From start to finish we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the park and our walk round Longleat house itself, and just when we thought it couldn't get any better... the lights turned on... WOW! It was spectacular, well organised and there was just so much to see around every corner. Ending with the enchanted Christmas tree show which finished the day off nicely.
After a full 8.5 hours at Longleat we commented on what excellent value for money the day had been and how thoroughly enjoyable it was. I would urge anyone to visit this clean, friendly and activity packed place where the animals seem loved and well looked after.

We visited here as part of a coach trip and have to say glad we booked the trip. We had a good couple of hours driving around the safari park, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The funniest and most entertaining monkey enclosure we have ever experienced. Some poor souls lost a few car parts to those cheeky monkeys.
The animals were easy to see, which we were surprised by as it had been raining.
We also got to walk around the grounds but due to the time of year we had very limited time to see the other animals before it got dark.

The festival of light is suitable for all ages. It does cater for prams and wheelchairs as there were plenty of ramps down the steps. It covers various topics from animals to outer space.

Will definitely be visiting again so we can view the rest of the animals and the house too.

Took the Grandchildren for half term & found the whole day excellent. Safari drive is brilliant & saw all the animals. The park & house are also first class & food outlets as good as you get. Certainly well worth a visit.

Visited Longleat Safari park as a VIP visitor to feed the tigers. What an experience. All staff we met were friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Tigers Red and Yana were amazing. This was my Christmas present and I couldn’t have asked for anything better (apart from seeing them in the wild) thanks to all the staff. The pictures say it all

This is a smaller park than a lot I have been too. We booked the bus to go round the animal areas and this was well worth it. The driver was jolly and gave us a wealth of information about the animals, and our car stayed safe the whole time. We went upstairs and although it was baking hot, we got great views. There were stops along the way and we did see a number of cars being remodelled by the monkeys!!
Also took a ride on the train and loved this too.
I liked the walk through with the Meerkats. They are cheeky little devils and tried to escape when we went in, but the keeper had it all under control. In the butterfly house (really warm in here) one of them took a liking to my son and this provided laughs all round. There a quite a few places to eat and drink but picnic tables were at a premium at lunch time (and this was during term time)
A good day out with the kids and the adults.
