We appreciate that everyone has different ideas of what they want, so the planning is executed on an individual and exclusive basis per couple.

Locations at Longleat

There are several locations available at Longleat, whether you're looking for heritage and historic architecture, a modern, spacious build that you can put your own stamp on or a scenic space; you can mix it up and move around the site or stay in the rooms available in Longleat House. The choice is yours.

Great Hall, Longleat House – dramatic, historic, and extravagant; the Great Hall flaunts antiquity and could be the setting for your special day.

Green Library, Longleat House – a classic and intimate setting, housing floor-to-ceiling bookcases and traditional décor; an excellent venue for your big day.

Orangery – overlooking the rose filled Love Labyrinth and the exquisite Secret Garden, the Orangery is a stunning and romantic setting for your ceremony to take place.

Lakeside Marquee – you could decide to hire a marquee and place it on the bank of Half Mile Lake with the opportunity to see the hippos and sea lions. A scenic space for your drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening entertainment.

The Longhouse – a new build on the Longleat Estate, The Longhouse can accommodate large wedding parties, with dedicated catering and facilities right in the heart of Longleat Estate.

Lord Bath's Banqueting Suite Package – a location within the penthouse apartments of Longleat House suitable for smaller gatherings of up to 35 guests. This is the only packaged offering that we offer at Longleat. It includes room hire for ceremony, drinks reception and a buffet wedding breakfast with catering, a VIP 4x4 Safari Tour for all guests and more.

Animals

Of course it wouldn't be Longleat without the mention of the array of animals we have. You can entertain your guests with the added extra of a Safari Bus tour, driving through the herds of zebra and towers of giraffe then on to the lions, tigers, cheetahs and wolves. Alternatively, you could voyage on the Jungle Cruise gliding along Half Mile Lake feeding our sea lions, spotting hippo and observing gorillas.

Catering

We are venue hire only, excluding Lord Bath's Banqueting Suite Package, but have recommended caterers with more details on our website including sample menus.
