Longleat has lots of little animals that are close by the stately home.
The enclosures are fantastic and for the meerkats, penguins, lemurs and parakeets their cages were open plan and we went in with them.
The penguins were funny as they were very young and refused to go in the water.
We did all the touristy things -rode the mini train, sailed on the lake, sat in both of the ride simulators even though they made us feel sick, went to the bird of prey show and had an ice cream.
Great day out.
