Warminster and Longleat

Warminster is a busy market town in western Wiltshire that makes a handy base for exploring the attractions in the Longleat estate.

Although there are not a lot of attractions in the town centre, the Lake Pleasure Grounds are worth a visit if you have spare time here. This park is just south of the town centre close to the Morrisons supermarket.

The main reason people visit Warminster is to visit the attractions at nearby Longleat estate, which is only 6.5km (4 miles) from the town centre. The Longleat estate is home to Longleat, the stately home that is home to the Marquesses of Bath, which is noted for its Capability Brown-designed gardens and its hedge maze (the world’s largest) and many people also come here to visit the Longleat Safari and Adventure Park, which was the first drive-through safari park outside Africa when it opened in 1966.

Warminster is also close to the Westbury White Horse, the oldest of several chalk carvings of white horses in Wiltshire.
