Access to Longleat House for visitors with limited mobility and for wheelchair users is via the rear of Longleat House. Please ask a member of staff if you would like to use the lift, which provides access to all floors.

On the advice of the fire service, only two wheelchair users are allowed on any floor; so we can accommodate four wheelchairs in the House at a time.

For conservation reasons it is not possible to allow pushchairs into Longleat House. A pushchair park is available at the rear of the House. Longleat accepts no liability for loss or damage to pushchairs left unattended.

A limited number of hip rests (for babies 6 months to 3 years) are available at the front desk. Please ask on the day of your visit if you would like to borrow one for the duration of your visit to Longleat House. A returnable deposit will be required.

Longleat House is set within 900 acres of ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped gardens and is widely regarded as one of the best examples of Elizabethan architecture in Britain and one of the most beautiful stately homes open to the public.

This former 16th-century Augustinian priory contains many treasures and heirlooms acquired by generations of the Thynn(e) family, some of whom were great collectors of their day. The collection comprises early books and manuscripts, magnificent paintings, exquisite Flemish tapestries, and fine French furniture all housed within 19th-century opulent interiors created by John Dibblee Crace.

Opening Times

Guided tours of Longleat House may only be purchased as an optional add-on to a day pass or annual season ticket for the safari park.

Lord Bath’s ‘famous & fabulous’ Murals

The murals form an extensive sequence of Lord Bath’s personal work which he describes as ‘glimpses of his psyche’. Their subject matter varies between cocoons, therapies and fantasies and they amount to the expression of one man’s individualism within a building which itself is a work of art. A small additional charge applies.
