Belvoir Castle lit up

Spectacle Of Light


Spectacle Of Light

Discover the night-time wonder of Belvoir Castle through a wonderful spectacle of light and sound. Enjoy this beautiful illuminated trail through the majestic woodland and around the glorious gardens, all lit under the stars…

Explore the stunning light installations, walk through the changing Light Curve, and immerse yourself in the Carpet of Colour on the main lawn and the amazing power of Paraluna.

Car parking for this event is free, from 4.30pm. Prior to 4.30pm, normal parking charges apply.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome if kept on a short lead!

Proudly crowning a hilltop in rural Leicestershire, Belvoir Castle was originally built as a fortification in the 12th century, providing stunning views of the panorama.

The natural topography of the Belvoir Estate and the gradient of the hillside, make the Spectacle of Light trail through the formal gardens and in to the landscape below incompatible with wheelchair, mobility scooter, and pushchair use.

People with restricted or fragile mobility should be mindful of this when booking this event. Appropriate footwear is recommended.

Take a moment to fortify yourself with mouth-watering treats available along the trail. Tantalise your taste buds with freshly made doughnuts, mac and cheese pots, cakes and sausage rolls as well as marshmallows, toasted over a firepit.

What could be better than a warming mulled wine, mulled cider or mug of steaming hot chocolate? Food and drink will be available half way through the trail and from chalets on the Castle North Terrace.

If you fancy something more substantial, we will be offering hearty Yorkshire pudding wraps and sausage and bacon cobs from Vale View Café by the ticket office. Supper is sorted!
