Summer Solstice Light Spectacle

The Caves, Livingstone Area

 1 December 2016 

The Summer Solstice Light Spectacle, a dazzling light display, is a natural phenomenon unique in the southern hemisphere. It occurs throughout December and early January.

Due to the alignment of the sun over the Tropic of Capricorn brilliant direct sun light penetrates the darkness of the Belfry Cave through a 14 metre vertical shaft in the cave roof at midday. The effect is electrifying. The colour of peoples clothing is reflected all round the cave walls and a disco mirror ball creates light patterns on the roof.

Proposals of marriage have been made in the light and 2008 saw the first Solstice wedding.

This is a special experience for visitors, and a delight for photographers.
