The Festival of Light at Longleat


Turn back the clock and travel the world at The Festival of Light this Christmas. Visitors are invited to journey through time, exploring more immersive and interactive lanterns than ever before in a historical wonderland brought to life.

The day begins with a Winter Safari like no other, before the lights turn on at dusk and festivities commence. Scenes from the Ice Age, Vikings, Ancient dynasties, monarchs, and more are on display.

The iconic 15-metre Enchanted Christmas Tree show and Santa Train are quintessential parts of the celebration.

Longleat House will once again present a spectacular light show, celebrating 75 years since it first opened its doors.

This unique experience offers the chance to create magical memories, explore stunning lanterns from various eras, and enjoy a day full of endless festive fun at Longleat.
