Take an enchanting journey into a glittering wonderland with Christmas at Kew at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew.

The popular after-dark Christmas event returns for a fourth year, with a new mile-long trail through the famous botanic gardens, lit up with more than 60,000 lights.

Get together with family and friends and follow the illuminated path around the gardens. Hear the choir of Christmas trees sing before going through the carpet of swaying lights and scented garden of blazing fires. Admire the giant crystals, colour-changing reed and crystal flowers art installations that glow into the night. Pass through the sparkling tunnel of dancing lights and sing along to classic Christmas tunes with the karaoke jukebox, before ending your journey with the spectacular light, music and water display in front of the iconic Palm House.

Little ones can catch a glimpse of Santa and his elves preparing for Christmas in the North Pole village, and enjoy a ride on the Victorian Carousel and helter skelter. While loved-up couples can snuggle up at the mistletoe stop.

There’s also plenty of delicious Christmas treats and warming winter drinks to be enjoyed in this magical atmosphere that’s guaranteed to get you into the festive spirit.
