Longleat has announced more plans for 2012, adding to an investment of over £5m in a series of new features for the 2011 season.

First time events for Longleat include a week-long Halloween Spookfest (October 22 – 31) and fireworks displays (October 28 – 29, November 4 – 5).

A new ‘Christmas at Longleat’ event (selected dates between November 18 – January 2) includes a giant real ice-skating rink, unique 40ft musical Christmas tree, and a traditional Christmas market with festive food and fayre.

New attractions still to open this year include Pedal Boats on the Longleat lakes and six Cheetahs, due to arrive in the next few weeks. For 2012 new attractions include a new Gorilla Island, the new Watering Hole and continuing work on the ‘Anne the Elephant Sanctuary’.

“We’re delighted with the positive response we have been getting from visitors about all the new attractions and events we have launched this year,” said David Bradley, Longleat Enterprises CEO.
