Longleat is the seat of the Marquesses of Bath. It is noted for its Elizabethan country house, maze, landscaped parkland and safari park. The house is set in 1,000 acres of parkland landscaped by Capability Brown and 4,000 acres (1,600 ha) of woodland. It was the first stately home to open to the public, and the Longleat estate includes the first safari park outside Africa.
In normal years Longleat hosts a number of festivals including a balloon festival and a magnificent Christmas Lights display.
