Christmas At Kew

Christmas At Kew

Now On Sale

New for 2014 Kew's winter landscape offers something for everyone. Guided by snowflakes, the new one mile glittering trail winds its way through the world famous botanic gardens in a magical after dark experience.

Wander between glowing waterside reflections, illuminated fountains and grand glasshouses as Kew's iconic architecture and unique tree canopies are brought to life drenched in Christmas colour. Along the way gaze at giant light sculptures, bright and luminous, like fireworks frozen in time, walk the shimmering Tunnel of Lights and perhaps steal a kiss at Mistletoe Moments. Stand among twinkling holly bushes and Christmas trees festooned with seasonal cheer as plumes of fire dance to festive music inspired by The Nutcracker set against a frosty, snow-flaked Palm House panorama.

Keep warm under the stars with a mulled wine, spiced cider or hot chocolate and make sure you browse Kew's well-stocked shops filled with carefully selected gifts!

Soak up the playful atmosphere at White Peaks where the Victorian carousel*, family rides* and an outdoor adventure playground provide fun for the younger ones – and don't forget to make time for a memorable visit with Santa in his Snowflake Grotto*.
