Travel Tips for Warminster
Longleat - the safari park
'The Lions of Longleat' are known the world over. Lord Bath's estate was the first to come up with the rather novel idea of turning several acres into an english version of an African Game reserve.
Back in the 1960's it was perhaps seen as a money-grabbing enterprise. Lord bath can't even claim it was his idea - it came from Billy smart (I think I am right in saying this) the circus promoter.
The idea became hugely popular, and in more recent years the conservation and breeding polices have led to a much more positive assessment of its worth.
You drive around the twisting series of enclosures in your own car (or pay a little extra to do it on a bus if you are carless). the first reserve feature a number of animals, including giraffe where you can get out of your car, picnic and spend time relaxing. This area also involves the inevitable, but quite upmarket, gift shop.
Other enclosures contain wilder animals, and are approached through a series of double sliding gates. Anyone familar with the film Jurassic park will be familar with what I mean. I sometime wonder if Jurassic park would have ever happened with Longleat !
The prides of big cats, monkeys and the like are free to roam at will as you drive around. It is quite an experience to see such animals in a semi-natural habitat.
Outdoor Activities for kids at Centre Parc
There is a wide range of outdoor activities available. Remember to see specifically what your children can do based on their age.
A Walk in the Woods
In conjunction with the Tree Council, this is a fascinating walk through Longleat Estate woodland with an experienced Ranger. The Ranger will introduce both adults and children to the countryside and its wildlife.
A Walk With Trees
Enjoy a walk around the Village with one of our forest Rangers, where you will learn how to identify various trees, native and introduced alike.
If you've got a good head for heights, learn to abseil from our tower.
Travel back in time when you embark on a special golf adventure into Medieval Britain. Then if you feel really brave why not challenge King Arthur to a round?
Our Adventure Playground is the perfect place for children to burn off excess energy.
Attempt to scale our 13 metre high Climbing tower using all our coloured routes or for the more adventurous just try one!
Close Encounters Walk
During the 1960's and 70's Warminster and Clay Hill near Longleat Forest, earned the reputation for the highest recorded UFO and Alien sightings in the UK. Bring your torch and join us for this night-time walk around the village.
Aqua Sana Spa at Centre Parc
Inspired by the Japanese art of quiet contemplation, enjoy the relaxation and restorative qualities of this garden during the warmer months. The gravel symbolises a sea of tranquillity. the rocks and meandering stepping stones within this 'sea' symbolise islands or mountains above the clouds. Try walking barefoot along the cobbles to the front of the pergola for a stress-relieving foot massage.
This Roman sauna is a gentle, purifying and detoxifying heat bath. The body gradually warms up to stimulate the circulation, so take a leisurely 15 minutes with your feet up on the heated bench.
Slip in here to relax. The heated loungers warm up your body in preparation for massage treatments or any heat experiences.
Multi Sensory Showers
Choose from three very different shower experiences, all with light, sound and scent. Options include the raindrops of a tropical storm and a refreshingly cold and minty mist.
A relaxing, effervescent footbath, with heated seats. Bubbles massage the feet and ankles and stimulate pressure points - just like the pedidarium of the Roman Baths.
An exhilarating outdoor pool with hydrotherapy jets where you can simply float or gently bubble and relax all your cares away.
With the essence of pine and mountain herbs the traditional, wood-lined sauna, deeply cleansing as the body gets hotter and the pores open. Use it in combination with the Ice Room or with a cold shower for maximum effect.
A mild steam bath based on a Turkish style steam room with the characteristic Ottoman blue and yellow tiling and motifs. The bath has a moist, aromatic atmosphere that is both purifying and detoxifying.
