One very exciting taxi tour we have is to the beautiful Longleat Park, House and Gardens. Longleat house is widely regarded as one of the best examples of high Elizabethan architecture in Britain and one of the most beautiful stately homes open to the public. Completed in 1580 and now occupied by the 7th Marquess of Bath. The house and collections are truly stunning with wonderful paintings, books, tapestries and furniture all with fascinating stories to tell.
Famous for its Capability Brown landscape, Longleat also has rich tradition of more formal gardens, started by the 1st Viscount of Weymouth when he transormed a 14 acre orchard into an impressive Baroque style garden and then again refashioned in the 1730s by the 2nd Viscount into a Rococo style garden housing a menagerie of exotic animals. Nowadays the formal gardens which were designed by the 2nd Marchioness in 1805 lie to the North of the house, where you can enjoy a coffee in the pretty Orangery.
Finally no trip to Longleat would be complete without visiting the Park, home to some incredible animals such as Nico the oldest Gorilla in Europe and second oldest in the world. With many other fascintaing animals to see including lions, tigers, cheetahs, meerkats, bats and wolves it truely is a special place to visit.
If Longleat itself doesn't keep you busy for the day, our drivers can help you plan a taxi tour taking in the many sights and pretty villages surrounding Longleat.
