Longleat is one of Wiltshire’s great family days out
We have 4 Luxury suites that are ideal for families that leave plenty of space for you and the children to move around comfortably in. There is a charge for extra beds but contact us first to discuss better. If your looking to buy Longleat tickets this you can do on the above link.
Some tips if you have not been before: You will be surprised at how many guests return to us by car and we watch as they try to put pieces of their car back together from the safari. Use the Longleat tour bus, it may be a little extra cost but it will in the short term, save you money.
There is so much to do you would be better off purchasing a two Day Ticket from the Longleat website to do this at your leisure. A lot of people will look at the weather forecast choosing the best day for the outdoors and do the indoors on a different day.
