From 14th to 16th September, Longleat’s spectacular Sky Safari is returning to make your visit extra special and it’s going to be even bigger and better than ever. Over the course of the three day event over 150 balloons of all shapes, sizes and colours will be taking to the skies above Longleat. You’ll get breath-taking views (and pictures) during our mass launches and tethered displays.
As well as flying more balloons than ever before, to make this year’s event even more memorable, they’ll be showcasing lots of beautiful (and sometimes bizarrely) shaped balloons! You will also be able to see their stunning Night Glows, back by popular demand, on both Friday 14thand Saturday 15th where a selection of balloons will light up Longleat – firing their burners to an amazing musical soundtrack.
You’re not going to want to miss this; between the animals, Longleat House and the balloons you’re going to be busy from dawn till dusk as it’s all included in your Day Ticket!
Opening times: 10am to 6pm with Night Glows on Friday and Saturday at 7:45pm
