how much is a family ticke to start with
#2
Seems good, can't find how much the family ticket for Longleat is on the website - does anyone know? Thanks x :)
#3
There isn't a family ticket! It says family tickets. You still have to purchase the tickets individually I think
#4
You don't even need to buy the paper!

No family tickets as such! Trust me! Each occupant in the car will be charged individually. So two adults and two children = £26 + £26 + £18.50 + £18.50 = £89. This is just the basic day ticket - other options get progressively more expensive (n.b. you can however save 10% to 15% off some of these prices by buying tickets online in advance).

So the attractions are well worth it? Perhaps, but speaking as someone who has lived 9 miles from Longleat for the best part of 57 years, and used to drive down into the grounds for very little or no dosh at all, just to walk the dog and/or have a picnic whilst enjoying the view of the house externally and all the other wonders of nature surrounding that centrepiece, I can now forget it forever, because the cash-cow is being well and truly milked by the faceless estate managers, headed by the new Thynne regime (his proper Lordship has handed control of the estate over to that little lot, so don't blame the old duffer at all, please).

The aim is definitely to say to the person wanting to come in: "Of course you can drive in - however, you can't just park up and chill out - you are paying for much more than that, whether you want to or not." Before you ask, yes, before the new pricing structure came in, Longleat ALWAYS offered a cut-price 'per vehicle' ticket for Grounds Only. Big mistake discontinuing that one, powers-that-be!

I remember the last time they priced themselves out of popularity and ended up virtually abandoning the entrance cash booths (1980s). It'll happen again. Try and wait it out, see if they have to take the same action again. Sorry to sound so negative, but I've spent most of my lifetime round here, and would hate anyone from further away to come away from it disappointed. Picnickers/dog walkers definitely, forget it!

I couldn't have put it better myself. I live 12 miles away and used to take the kids for a picnic in the grounds and treat them to one activity - maze or adventure castle etc. We walked from Heaven's Gate to Longleat a few months ago on a very hot and humid day, queued up at the Maze, only to be told we had to buy a day ticket. Went to one of the ticket booths and were told that for the ticket would cost around £84!! I asked if we could just pay cash to go into the maze but they wouldn't have it. So, 3 hot and disappointed kids and 1 cross mum!

Perhaps they should change their slogan from The Lions of Longleat to The Cash Cow of Longleat. :(
