Why not spend an evening in London’s famous Kew Gardens as you’ve never seen it before. Filled with festive illuminations, interactive displays and a Victorian fairground, you’ll soon be singing carols and looking for Father Christmas. Follow trails of over a million flickering lights, illuminating trees and gardens throughout the park on a specially chosen trail. There will be singing trees, giant flowers, kaleidoscopic projections lighting up the palm house as well as a fire garden. Children can visit North Pole Village to see Santa and his elves and enjoy toasting marshmallows around the fire with a warming cup of hot chocolate.
