Longleat

Wander around the pleasure grounds and discover the beautiful Orangery and Palladian Bridge designed by Jeffry Wyatville.

Designed by Graham Burgess in 1993, large metal hearts are mixed with roses in the Maze of Love. And above the entrance it says: ‘You are expected to kiss your partner each time you pass under a heart shaped arch’.

The Hedge Maze was added in 1975 and is made up of over 16,000 English yew while The Sun Maze and the Lunar Labyrinth were designed by Randoll Coate in 1996.

The 8th Marquess of Bath and his wife and their children live in the house.

A sumptious tea is sometimes served in the Orangery – booking is recommended. Check Longleat’s website for details.

Opening times are complex – see Longleat’s website for details.
