I have not had a holiday for over 12 years and I found this thoroughly enjoyable.

Further Pricing & Departure date information
Visit Longleat Safari Park, as featured on the hugely popular BBC series 'Animal Park' with Kate Humble and Ben Fogle. See the zebras, the monkeys and the world-famous lions from the comfort of your coach, and perhaps take the chance to explore the beautiful grounds and the magnificent house itself by upgrading to a Passport Ticket.
Single rooms are available for a supplement
Leaving the local area in the early morning we'll journey to beautiful Bath. See the restored Roman Baths and Museum, the Abbey and Assembly Rooms, the elegant Royal Crescent, the Circus and famous Pulteney Bridge, and take advantage of the city's fantastic shopping, before we continue to our overnight hotel.
Today's highlight is our visit to Longleat, home to the Seventh Marquess of Bath and the UK's first drive through Safari Park. As well as enjoying the animals in the Park, you may like to see the treasures and heirlooms in Longleat House, explore the Longleat Hedge Maze, journey on the Longleat Railway or even set sail on the safari boats. There really is something for everyone to enjoy!
In the mid afternoon we'll begin our homeward journey, returning to the local area by mid to late evening depending on traffic and the distance to be travelled.
Longleat is exceptionally busy during the summer holidays. In order to give you more time to enjoy all of the attractions, departures from Longleat during August will be very late in the afternoon, with a late evening arrival home.
You may wish to upgrade to a Longleat day ticket for Longleat which entitles you to entry to all Longleat's attractions and represents fantastic value for money.
Unfortunately it is no longer possible to buy individual tickets for Longleat's attractions except the House and Gardens. If you want to visit any of the other attractions (hedge maze, train etc) you will need a day ticket (which will include entrance to the House and Gardens as well).
