Christmas at KewA chorus of singing trees, giant light-up piano keys connected to a real-life piano and laser beams over water await visitors to the mile-long illuminated trail that forms the centrepiece of Christmas at Kew. In 2017, for the first time the great broad walk borders form part of the trail, transformed by hundreds of shining petals and gigantic flower pots. After dusk, Kew Gardensis lit up by giant light sculptures, a fire garden and light projections on the Palm House. Stop off to see Santa and his elves performing panto along the way, enjoy carousel and helter skelter rides as well as mulled wine, mince pies and traditional festive fare.

 

About Kew Gardens (Royal Botanic Gardens)

Since the 18th century, these extensive gardens have been the spiritual home of botany in England, if not in Europe. From the cooling glades of the British Woodland Garden to the pulsating humidity of the exotic Palm House, the delicate beauty of the Rose Garden to the soothing tranquillity of the Waterlily House, at Kew you can witness over 40,000 plants embarking on a fascinating journey through their annual cycles - flowering and fruiting, growing and resting.
