Step into a world of wonder, illuminated by the mesmerising Festival of Light at Longleat Safari Park. It’s one of the longest running festive lights events in the UK.

This winter, Longleat is transformed into a magical realm of dazzling lights and captivating displays. Create magical memories as you step into the past with an interactive and immersive lantern trail. Walk through a great pyramid of Egypt, dodge a dinosaur’s roar, or marvel at the 10-metre high Roman Colosseum, complete with chariots and gladiators. Explore the era you want to discover as we showcase the evolution of the earth from the age of the dinosaurs to the 20th century.

Longleat Safari Park is also home to over 500 different species of animals, making it one of the most diverse wildlife collections in the UK. From majestic big cats and playful primates to exotic birds and fascinating insects, visitors can encounter a wide array of creatures from all corners of the globe.

Upgrade your ticket to include the safari drive-through and get up close to lions, giraffes, wolves and tigers, all from the comfort of your car.

At the end of the day, we’ll be holding our free prize draw, a great opportunity to win some Safari Park goodies to take home.

The Festival of Light is a sell-out event, so make sure you get your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
