This winter the unmissable Festival of Light at Longleat returns to transform the park into a glowing winter wonderland. 

The much anticipated theme for  this year will be the magic of storytelling. It draws inspiration from tales new and old; including popular stories like Little Red Riding Hood, the Nordic influenced Little Mermaid, as well as the local legend of Somerset’s ‘Gurt Worm’ dragon and Longleat will be transported to a whimsical fairy tale land of imagination, through a series of giant and awe-inspiring illuminated lantern displays.

Among dazzling scenes of cherished tales, including Cinderella’s horse-drawn pumpkin carriage and Snow White’s infamous encounter with the peddler woman; visitors to Longleat are invited to dance with the Sugar Plum Fairy, marvel at the dizzying heights of Rapunzel’s’ tower, hide from the Snow Queen, make friends with the Ugly Duckling, meet the charming Frog Prince, and lose themselves in Thumbelina’s toadstool valley.

The luminous Enchanted Christmas Tree Show will be the culmination of the incredible adventures across Longleat’s festive fairy tale land, with a captivating story of yuletide joy.

Alongside the remarkable outdoor experiences; Longleat’s prestigious Elizabethan stately home will be dressed in traditional Edwardian festive décor. This is where guests are invited to become characters in their own story and immerse themselves in an historic and eye-opening world of butlers, servants and housekeepers. Guides throughout the house will interact with guests and each other in traditional costume, breathing an enchanting life into the grand interiors. (Please note only selected rooms will be open)
