ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW....

Thousands of miniature lights, along with special fire and lighting effects, create an enchanting atmosphere during our summer evening illuminations! 

DATES:

August 1st to 14th - Every Tue, Wed & Thu evening. Lights on 8.45pm to 10.15pm. Latest park entry is 8.00pm.

September 7th, 14th & 21st - Lights on 7.45pm to 9.15pm.  Latest park entry 7.00pm. 

BEST OF BOTH - It's a day & night experience! - Some of the detail, models & spotter sheet characters are not so visible after dark.  Crazy Golf, included free with admission, is only available during daylight and closes about 30 mins after last entry.  So our evenings are a day & night experience in one visit, you cannot arrive after dark!

Suggested arrival times to include golf and to experience day & night with the lights: - Early August: 7.00-8.00pm, late August: 6.30-7.30pm, September: 6.00-7.00pm. Enjoy a daylight visit first and then go around again after dark.  You need to allow 2 to 3 hours for your visit, staying until near closing to experience the lights at their best. See our OPENING TIMES

Refreshments: Our coffee shop will be open for drinks & snacks, but you are welcome to bring your own lightbites to enjoy on the terrace outdoors between 'day & night' (these cannot be consumed in the coffee shop)

Dinner on the Downs? - For a full evening out, we are just a few minutes walk to the Babbacombe Downs, with amazing coastal views and a wide variety of pubs & restaurants - many with Al fresco seating and sea views.  This would be a good place to have an early dinner prior to your visit to us. SEE HERE for eatery suggestions
