Longleat offers a new theme every year and this year’s Festival of Light promises to wow you once again. The grounds are transformed into a magical array of lights. During the day you can visit the house and Safari Park with its magnificent and varied collection of animals, as the night falls watch the gardens and house become a magic place with walkways, trees and displays. Once upon a time, in a land surrounded by wonder; where lions roar, Christmas trees sing, and stories come to life, there was a Festival of Light… The spectacular Chinese lantern festival is returning for the fourth year, bigger, brighter and more in demand than ever. This winter the spectacular Festival of Light will light up Longleat once more! Explore Longleat’s incredible attractions; Safari Drive Adventure, Longleat House and much, much more! A full-on fun-packed day for all the family!
At Christmas time the house & gardens are beautifully decorated to celebrate the festive season, making it a special time to visit this National Trust Property.
Saltram overlooks the River Plym and is set in a rolling landscape park that provides precious green space on the outskirts of Plymouth. Strolling along the riverside or through the woodland, you can almost forget that the city lies so close.
Saltram was home to the Parker family from 1743, when an earlier mansion was remodelled to reflect the family’s increasingly prominent position. It’s magnificently decorated, with original contents including Chinese wallpapers and an exceptional collection of paintings (several by Sir Joshua Reynolds). It also has a superb country house library and Robert Adam’s Neo-classical Saloon.
Join us for our monthly mystery trip! The destinations are loosely set but can be changed even on the morning of the trip to allow for the weather or special events we might hear about. One thing is sure, it’s always a friendly, relaxed day out.
The award-winning Bath Christmas Market will return in 2019 to spread magical merriment across the city. With over 160 twinkling chalets set in Bath’s picturesque Georgian streets, it’s the perfect place to do a spot of Christmas shopping.
