2/7 Longleat Safari Park, Warminster

Longleat Safari Park first opened its doors in 1966. For the first time, animals were able to move freely across hundreds of acres of land and more importantly, interact naturally and unaided. Since its opening Longleat’s approach has remained the same – ethical, educational, sustainable and fun.

Longleat is home to over 100 species, from rhinos to wildebeests, this safari park has a surprise around every corner. For an extra treat, take the kids to meet parrots at daily educations shows. Be amazed as expert keepers tell you more about these incredible creatures and how you can all look after the world they live in. Not only are parrots eagerly awaiting to meet you, if you fancy holding a snake or a spider, onsite rangers will make sure you get a personal introduction.

The team behind Longleat believe in the importance of conservation of both animals and their environments, so they ask visitors to respect all the habitats and the environment around them.

If you need to stop and refuel, you’ll have no trouble finding a kiosk nearby a variety of hot and cold drinks and snacks, and for a sit-down meal there are five on-site eateries. Most of the restaurants offer baby changing and bottle warming facilities and cater for all dietary requirements – speak to a member of staff on the day to find out more.

Price: A one-day access all areas ticket from £33.95 for adults, £25.45 for children (3-15), and under three go free!
