Longleat Land of Light

It’s an event specially created for the Longleat Estate, the Land of Light’s technology, art and interactive installations provide a stunning and unique alternative to the much-loved winter lantern spectacular; the Festival of Light, which Longleat has postponed until 2021 due to COVID-19.

See sensational projections light up the iconic Longleat House, dancing fountains and animated light displays across the ornate grounds and gardens, Half Mile Lake and The Longhouse.

Land of Light features thousands of spectacular light sources, illuminating seven themed areas across the Wiltshire estate.

Wander through motion-detected splashes of playful colour and sound and step inside the giant four-metre tall geometric portal with its immersive and vibrant pattern of choreographed lights.

Longleat’ s famous Sun Maze and Love Labyrinth will be embellished with LED lighting, mirror balls and atmospheric haze, with trees and topiary hedges decked out in their own stunning illuminated displays, bringing a wintery shimmer to the historic gardens.

Venture into the 70-metre long sensory tunnel before heading inside The Longhouse for a 360° infinity experience, featuring fully mirrored walls and hundreds of diffracted laser beams in a floor-to-ceiling optical and aural experience.

Longleat’ s iconic 20-metre tall Enchanted Christmas Tree returns to the Stable Yard.
