Christmas at Kew

4:00pm – 10:00pm
£19.50 – £24.50
Kew

Spend an evening in London’s famous Kew Gardens as you’ve never seen them 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.

What to see and do

There’ll 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.

Eating and drinking

Independent street food vendors will offer tasty festive delights along the route, so along with the usual mulled wine, you can look forward to delicious foods of all kinds from around the world.
