About

Longleat

Longleat is famous for many things, but foremost are two historic “firsts”. Its Elizabethan house was the first stately home to open to the public in 1949; and in 1966 it launched the first drive-through safari park outside of Africa. 

Both still thrive today in the lush, 900-acre parkland landscaped by Capability Brown. Home to the Thynne family since 1568, Longleat’s most famous resident is the eccentric 7th Marquess of Bath. The second most famous is Nico, the silverback gorilla who inhabits the island on the lake.
