The safari drive-through is the key attraction of the park and has much to show you: from giraffes to elephants, lions and wolves, Longleat means business for all animal lovers. After the drive, check out Longleat House which is nothing short of splendiferous!
Located in Richmond, a few kilometres west of London, Kew Gardens reveals scenery it shows off with pride.

Wiltshire, England, is home to one of the most iconic heritage monuments in the world. You have, at one point in time or another, saved Stonehenge as a screensaver on your desktop. Why not drive out and see the actual monument? This prehistoric monument has the signature of Neolithic and Bronze Age eras stamped firmly on it. Start exploring the Stone Circle and admire the masterpiece built by Neolithic ancestors. Check out their houses and immerse yourself in Neolithic culture thanks to the reconstitution of the place as it was 4,500 years ago. Then, you can drive back and feel like you had stepped forward in time from ancient times!
Located in Cornwall, The Eden Project is quite a sight to behold. Housed in dome-shaped structures, flora thrives in this botanical landscape. The Rainforest Biome utopia undulates over vast landscapes, giving you quite a lot to explore. Take a walk with your family on the Rainforest Canopy Walkway and admire the beatiful flora and fauna on display. Take a break and get yourself a fresh smoothie at the Baobab bar and recount your adventures at Eden Project.
