Family Fun

Are you looking for things to do in Wiltshire for kids? Let us give you some ideas for some great family days out in Wiltshire…

One of Wiltshire’s largest family attractions is Longleat Safari & Adventure Park featuring Monkey Temple, a Jungle Cruise and the Jungle Express to name but a few of the things! Spot some of the animals made famous by the BBC’s Animal Park and let off steam in the adventure playground.

Feed and stroke an array of animals at either Cholderton Charlie’s Farm or Roves Farm. Spot magnificent butterflies at Studley Grange Butterfly World & Craft Village meet various animals at the Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens or step aboard a locomotive at STEAM – Museum of the Great Western Railway.

Practice being a knight or a princess and learn about times gone by at one of English Heritage’s Old Sarum or Old Wardour Castle events that take place throughout the year or hop onto the Stonehenge Tour Bus for a fascinating insight into Stonehenge.

Visit Bowood House & Gardens with its fantastic adventure playground featuring a pirates’ ship and soft-play area or Wilton House with its adventure playground with tree top slides, swing boats and beautiful parklands to explore.

Learn about ghoulish tales and ghostly goings-on in Salisbury with one of the Salisbury City Guides ghost or horrible history tours and visit one of our museums for hands-on learning or how about exporing our towns and villages on a Treasure Trail or having a go at trying to crack the codes at Salisbury Escape Room.

Or how about heading to Wiltshire's very own beach at Cotswold Water Park!
