Days out from Bath

A stay in accommodation in Bath not only means some of the country’s most impressive attractions right on your doorstep, but also some great family days out just a short drive away.

Gather the children and grab your cameras as Longleat Safari Park is just as 40 minute drive from the city centre, and the attraction is home to hundreds of animals and the historic Longleat House at the centre of the park. Make your way around the park in your own time and experience a drive through the cheeky monkey enclosure (keep your windows firmly closed for this one!), a close encounter with lions and the chance to come face to face with species from all over the globe.

Sticking with an animal theme you’ll also find Bristol Zoo Gardens less than 40 minutes from Bath. These 12 acre gardens have a selection of awards to their name and are home to 400 species of animal and they’re great fun for all ages. You can watch the animals as they enjoy their feeds, let your own little monkeys enjoy the play areas and learn about conservation as you make your way around. The lion cubs born in 2013 are getting bigger by the day, so don’t forget to go and say hello during a stay in Bath.
