Christmas at KewA 50-foot Christmas tree and mile-long illuminated trail turns Kew Gardens into an enchanted winter landscape this Christmas. The beautiful gardens open their doors after dark to reveal a walkway peppered with giant light sculptures, a tunnel of lights and light projections on the Palm House and in 2015 there's a newly designed fire garden, scented with pine, frankincense and cedar. This year the focus is on the Christmas tree. It was here, after all, in the 1790s that Queen Charlotte, a founder of Kew Gardens, first dressed the branches of a Christmas tree at Kew Palace for all to enjoy.

 

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.
