Yes. Spectacle of Light is suitable for all ages.

We recommend allowing 75 minutes for the experience; however, you can enjoy the Spectacle at your own pace and stay for longer if you wish.

  • Spectacle of Light will only be cancelled if either extreme weather makes the route unsafe, if there is a major fault in our electrical supply or equipment, or Government restrictions on the pandemic tighten once again.
  • Spectacle of Light is an outdoor event and will not be cancelled due to rain or extreme cold. Visitors are advised to dress appropriately for the weather conditions. No refunds will be offered if the weather is inclement but the Spectacle is safe to go ahead.
