Join us on this lovely winter break for a truly unique spectacle as hundreds of illuminated designs transform the beautiful estate of Longleat into a glowing winter wonderland. We also visit the Safari Park, the festively decorated Elizabethan stately home, and have a day exploring Bath with tea in Bradford-on-Avon.
Day 1 A home pick up by taxi and then we travel by coach to the pretty town of Shaftesbury and the famous Gold Hill. We then continue toward Midsomer Norton and our hotel.
Day 2 This morning we visit Bath, with time for shopping or perhaps a visit to the famous Roman Baths. We then visit Bradford-on-Avon and enjoy afternoon tea and cake before our return to our hotel.
Day 3 We have a full day at Longleat to make the most of the many attractions. Visit the animals as we drive through the amazing Safari Park*; see the house and gardens decorated beautifully for Christmas; enjoy a trip on the jungle cruiser and buy wonderful Christmas gifts. At 4pm the lights come on and the grounds are populated with spectacular illuminated forms – a sight not to be missed!
Day 4 After a leisurely breakfast, we travel to Street to Clarks Shopping Village for some retail therapy and time for lunch. Early afternoon we make our way homewards to our taxis.
