The UK’s original, biggest and most exciting lantern festival is returning to Longleat. This year, The Festival of Light promises to be even more extraordinary than ever as you step into The Treasured Tales.

From the Blackmore Vale area, we take you directly to Longleat where we will start the day with a tour through the safari park (except for the monkey enclosure) seeing the animals hopefully in their winter homes. Enjoy incredibly close animal encounters on a winter safari in what was the first ever safari park outside of Africa.

We will leave Longleat returning later and head for a 2 course Sunday Lunch- Roast & Desert at The George Inn – Longbridge Deverill.

After your lunch we head back to Longleat where you will experience Christmas at Longleat as one of the most beautiful stately homes in the land is transformed into a world of enchantment. Then as darkness falls, the Festival of Light is sure to amaze with more than 30 acres of illumination. Embark on a magical journey and see some show-stopping lantern scenes taken from The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S Lewis, Cinderella, Snow White, The Wizard of Oz and more. Each lantern scene will bring key moments from the iconic books to life.

Also don’t miss the giant 50ft singing Christmas tree with over 300,000 individual twinkling lights. With its house, safari and Festival of Light Longleat has plenty to see and do whatever the weather.
