CHRISTMAS AT KEW The Magic Light Installations
Thursday 05 December 2019

CHRISTMAS AT KEW

 

We will arrive at Kew at 17.00 just as it is getting dark  and take a leisurely stroll around the gardens which are lit with thousands of lights.

The paths are flat and there are seats on route. Afterwards there is an open air Christmas craft market  and Kews on delightful cafe to visit.

Now in its seventh year, the 2019 winter trail takes a magical new route and includes a host of all-new installations. 

Framed by glittering spiral trees, dynamic laser projections will illuminate the iconic Temperate House.

A dazzling arch leads to a cascade of glowing silvery shards at the Treetop Walkway. Walk amongst immersive vines as they surprise with changing ribbons of light, and wander beneath the branches where mysterious fairy-fire known as Will-o’the Wisp softly glows. 

Familiar favourites will also return. The Holly Bushes will sing, the Tunnel of Light will twinkle with thousands of pea-lights, and the flickering Fire Garden takes its place amidst the festive experience.

Walk under larger-than-life arches of light and beneath unique tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour.

Christmas at Kew wouldn’t be complete without the Palm House Pond finale as jumping jets of light dance across the water to much-loved Christmas classics.

Complete a walk under the stars with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate and end the evening browsing Kew’s gift shops. Why not pick up some treats for the journey home?

 

Cost will be approx. £52, more details to follow.
