What’s so special about Longleat Forest?

Body Content

A breath-taking forest setting

Longleat Forest is home to rare giant Redwood trees which line the village and are over 100 years old. The village spans over 400 acres and due to the rolling hills, valleys and gradients, it is perfect for those who enjoy walking.

A unique Land Train

Take a trip on the Longleat Forest Land Train! With trains every 20 minutes*, this is a great way to see more of the village and to get you from A to B.

The Land Train route is 3.8 miles long and if you stayed on for the whole circuit, it would take a total of 40 minutes. This is perfect if you’re with little ones. A timetable is available on arrival, with times varying on arrival and departure days.

Forest Cavern

An exclusive experience at Aqua Sana Longleat Forest with a 5 bubble spa rating. Taking design inspiration from local cave formations, our unique tepidarium recreates the sights, sounds and sensations of a cavern nestled deep in the humid rainforest. Listen to the trickling water, breathe in the pomegranate and myrrh infused air and hide away from the world in this natural haven. 

Unique activities

Longleat Forest is home to several unique activities that won’t be found at any of our other villages. Jump, splash or climb your way to the end of our outdoor, inflatable water obstacle course, AquaParc.

Join forces with friends or family to solve clues and experience Locked In A Room! Choose from two escape rooms: Locked In A Room – Parallax and Locked In A Room – TimeLock, as you solve clues to escape the room.

Discover the wonderful wildlife and flora with the Longleat Wildlife Walk. Experienced rangers will take you on a tour through the forest as you find inhabitants in their natural environments and soak up their specialist knowledge.

Book your next Center Parcs break to experience all of this and more.

*Trains run from 7pm on changeover days
