Christmas At Kew

Christmas At Kew

Seasonal illuminations lighting Kew after dark

This Christmas head to Kew Gardens for the magical annual Christmas at Kew event. 

There’s something for everyone at this festive time of year as the one mile sparkling path winds its way through the world-famous gardens in a magical after dark experience.

Now in its fifth year, our new 2017 winter trail boasts over one million twinkling lights.  Welcome to an enchanting world festooned with seasonal cheer as you wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour.

Here, fairy-tale meets fantasy as singing trees, larger-than-life flora, ever-changing ribbons of light, giant baubles, and a flickering Fire Garden await. And for the finale, criss-crossing laser beams leap to life at the Palm House, with jumping jets of light and kaleidoscopic projections.

See Santa and his elves at the North Pole along the way. Enjoy your favourite vintage rides*, gather to toast marshmallows and traditional festive fare, and browse in Kew’s well-stocked gift shops.

*separate charges apply for the vintage rides

Tickets for Christmas at Kew are on sale from 27th June 2017 with See Tickets
