30 acres of Chinese Lanterns, Decorated stately home, Winter safari park drive, crarfts, market, giant Christmas Tree.....

This Christmas season Longleat is again hosting a truly spectacular and festive event – a tradition which features the beautifully decorated Elizabethan stately home, the Winter safari, 50 ft singing Christmas Tree, your chance to skate on real ice and the Magical Santa Train to Farther Christmas’s Grotto. If you are looking for festive gift inspirations there will be market style traditional craftsmen making unique gifts, not forgetting the fantastic range on offer in Longleats’ own shops. 

A special feature this season will be the World famous CHINESE LANTERNS – a combination of traditional Chinese Cultural displays and bespoke Animal Lanterns made especially for Longleat. Some of these will be 60 feet high and the display will sweep through the stunning gardens and overspill into the lake.  An amazing combination of light and intricate detail filled with thousands of LEDs will make for a dazzling display.
