Longleat House & Grounds

Although Longleat is perhaps most famous for it’s safari park which opened in 1966, the magnificent Elizabethan house and grounds has been the home of the Thynn (or Thynne family) for nearly 500 years.

Widely regarded as one of the finest examples of an Elizabethan stately home in the country, it has been the seat of the Marquess’s of Bath since Thomas Thynne rose to that position in 1789.

Below are a few shots of the house and grounds:
