This winter, hundreds of Chinese lanterns light up 30 acres of Capability Brown landscaped grounds at Longleat Festival of Light. The safari park celebrates Myths and Legends for 2019 and famous figures and mythical beasts lie around every corner. Watch out for the kraken, a gargantuan sea monster lurking in the depths of Longleat’s Half Mile Lake. The lanterns are located next to wide, flat pathways and are accessible to all. The event runs from 9th November to 5th January. Catch them at 4:30pm in November and 4pm in December, depending on daylight.
