Venture Bay

Big fun for little swimmers at Longleat Forest - 26th May 2017

As our project to transform the Subtropical Swimming Paradise at Longleat Forest moves into its final stages (we’ll let you know as soon as we have a confirmed full opening date, we promise), we’re ready to open the doors to Venture Bay, our new exciting water playground for little ones.

The new Venture Bay will open at 10am on Tuesday 30th May. In order to carry out some last-minute tweaks, this means we will need to briefly close the existing toddler pool from 5pm on Monday 29th May.

Featuring warm, shallow pools, fountains, games and little slides, pirate-themed Venture Bay is ideal for little ones who already love to splash, or those who are still finding their sea legs.

We’re putting the ‘super’ back into our supermarket - 10th April 2017

We’re always trying to ensure that all our facilities are looking fresh and up-to-date, which is why we will be working hard to put the ‘super’ back into our supermarket at Longleat Forest.

ParcMarket will be closed from 15 May 2017 and will reopen on 16 June 2017. The refurbishment will update ParcMarket to give it a modern new look and will introduce a few new features whilst retaining everything you love about our store in the Plaza.

During the closure, you will still be able to shop all your favourite brands and daily essentials in our fully-stocked temporary ParcMarket, open in The Venue.

The fiesta has arrived at Longleat Forest with Las Iguanas opening its doors for the first time today.

From Mexican favourites to fiery Brazilian dishes and featuring a fun yet familiar children’s menu, it’s the new place to be on the Village.

Subtropical Swimming Paradise

Longleat Forest continues with upgrade plans for Subtropical Swimming Paradise - Updated 12th September 2016

A new four-person raft ride and a family play area and toddler pool are the latest additions set to join Longleat Forest’s Subtropical Swimming Paradise.

We are very excited about the plans, but must make guests aware that this is an extensive project and there will be noise, road closures and increased vehicle movement during certain stages of the build. However, we will of course do our best to keep disruption for our guests to a minimum.

As we move into a new phase of the project, you will see some minimal disruption within the Subtropical Swimming Paradise itself. There will be a reduction in space and facilities in the toddler area to allow for the new toddler and children’s area to be progressed but please be assured there are still plenty of things for the little ones to enjoy.

May we take this opportunity to thank all of our guests for their patience whilst we continue to upgrade our facilities.
