Architects of Air have toured to more than 40 countries across five continents with their extraordinary structures which astonish and delight audiences of all ages. Inspired by Islamic architecture and gothic cathedrals, each luminarium is an intriguing shape, with interiors that are brilliantly iridescent and a maze of dazzling and unexpected spaces - and for Wheee! 2018 we have secured the world premiere of their new creation Daedalude.

Wheelchair accessible, carers attend free. Parents/carers of visitors with autism/registered disability who may experience difficulty queueing please let us know at the ticket sales point.

Babies under 18 months attend free but need a baby ticket for entry.
