Longleat 2021

 

Usually 'Longleat Festival of Light', has changed for 2021 to 'Longleat at Christmas', see information below regarding the event details for this year!

 

The astonishing kingdom of Longleat is being transformed into a magical land full of festive joy and cheer with plenty of delights to make your visit extra special. Experience our brand-new event, Christmas at Longleat, from 6th November 2021 to 3rd January 2022.

Journey through a mesmerising tunnel of light and sound, leading you to the front of the iconic Longleat House. Marvel at the magnificent musical display and surround yourself by over 100 warmly lit Christmas trees.

 

Then, as the animals are tucking in for the night, explore our Wonderland Walk through Jungle Kingdom and Monkey Temple. A charming trail of illuminated sculptured flowers dotted alongside the snowy paths. Wander through the Hedge Maze as it’s adorned by thousands of twinkling lights for a magical atmosphere at twilight. And bask in festive spirit as you listen to carols in the Park’s Main Square.

 

Don’t miss the return of the iconic 20 metre Enchanted Christmas Tree which will be lighting up the architecture of Longleat’s Stable Yard once more, all the while serenading the Park with beloved Christmas melodies.

 

Venture to The Longhouse for an extra sprinkling of seasonal spirit. We’ve combined the magic of storytelling with the aerial grace and agility of native species including tawny, barn and eagle owls to create a truly unforgettable experience with The Flight Before Christmas.

During the day, you can also enjoy all of Longleat’s animal and adventure attractions, including the Safari Park, Koala Creek, Jungle Kingdom, Jungle Cruise and the ever-popular Adventure Castle. Longleat House will remain closed for both guided tours and free-flow access.
