A breathtaking new immersive light trail is coming to Leeds this festive season

Get ready for a magical world of illuminations.

Temple Newsam will host Northern Lights, West Yorkshire’s newest seasonal attraction.

Following sellout success in Newcastle last year, the acclaimed event is now making its debut in Leeds and it is going to be nothing short of spectacular.

Expected to attract over 100,000 visitors, a spectrum of illuminations and unique musical instalments will be set among the heritage gardens and picturesque woodlands of Temple Newsam.

Running from Thursday 21 November to Tuesday 31 December 2024, the jaw-dropping festival of light will take visitors on a journey of the beloved surroundings but in a new magical new light.

Visitors can expect a showcase of exclusive art installations and special effects from the UK’s leading lighting designers , along with interactive elements and festive photo moments, along a 90-minute route.

Approximately one mile in length, the light trail will feature 14 distinct illuminated zones along the way as well as vintage fairground rides and stalls serving a variety of festive treats, including mulled wine, hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows.
