Christmas at Kew

Christmas at Kew

A botanical world filled with seasonal cheer

It’s the most wonderful time of the year when over a million lights, lasers and seasonal sounds fill the air with festive fun at Kew Gardens. Look forward to some together time with family and friends, as you discover sparkling tunnels of light, dancing waterside reflections and trees drenched in jewel-like colour on your way to the panoramic Palm House display. For a moment of reflection, pause at mesmerising flickering flames in the fire garden, larger-than-life illuminations and don’t forget to glimpse Father Christmas along the way.

Our crew of talented independent street food vendors bring a delicious twist to tasty treats on offer. Have yourself a holly, jolly Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with a *spiced winter warmer or *hot chocolate shared with someone special.

Your very merriest Christmas starts here. Limited capacity with timed entry. Plan now to secure the date and time of your choice.
