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 with a new mile-long trail through the famous botanic gardens, lit up with more than one million lights.
Get together with family and friends and follow the illuminated path around the gardens. The adventure begins with a scenic trail illuminated by hundreds of glowing globes winding through the trees, and an enormous shimmering Sledge Tree made of more than 360 wooden Santa’s sledges.
Hear the chorus of Singing Trees before arriving at a wonderful glistening lake, where you’ll witness an underwater display of lights. Discover an ephemeral walkway of giant bubbles, clusters of trees wrapped in ribbons of changing light and a huge weeping beech tree, plus other fascinating installations glowing into the night.
See the array of luminous petals at the Great Broad Walk Borders, which features in Christmas at Kew for the first time this year, 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 performing panto along the trail, and enjoy a ride on the Victorian carousel and helter skelter.
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.
