Written by Martine Somerville


Longleat’s Festival of Light is back once again,
There are so many reasons to visit, tell all your friends!
From the incredible lanterns, animal encounters, Santa and more,
Here are 6 great reasons for you to explore!

1. Animal Encounters

Spend a delightful day meeting animals of all shapes and sizes from all over our globe on an exciting safari, on a jungle cruise or up close and personal in the Jungle Kingdom.

2. The impressive lanterns! This year’s theme: ‘A Fantastic Voyage’

 As darkness descends see a fantastic display of illuminations that come to life in a myriad of colours set around the magnificent backdrop of Longleat House. This year the theme is  ‘A Fantastic Voyage’ and stunning Chinese lanterns will light up the evening sky taking you on a memorable journey through time and space with amazing scenery, buildings, creatures and much more.

3. The Santa Train

Where better is there to see Santa this Christmas than at Longleat? Hop on board his own very special train ‘The Santa Express’ and enjoy a fun ride around the park.  Hop off halfway through your journey and meet Santa in his very festive North Pole Grotto and receive a lovely Christmas gift!

4. The Christmas Tree Show

Visit the much loved ‘Christmas Tree’, which enthrals young and old alike every year as it comes to life with spectacular twinkling lights and music. Listen to stories of 3 explorers, Harry, Bea and Monty the dog as they set off on an exciting adventure!

5. Children’s Play Areas

 Lose the kids to burn off excess energy in the Adventure Castle or the lovely new ‘Little Explorers garden’  play area with its different zones. Each one is based on an animal you may be lucky enough to spot in your garden!
