The magnificent Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew will be transformed into a magical after-dark explosion of festive lights to welcome the Christmas season.

For Christmas the magnificent Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew will once again be transformed into a magical after-dark explosion of festive lights.  An enchanting world full of seasonal cheer beneath tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour. Follow a one mile long sparkling trail of over 1 million twinkling lights, illuminating heritage trees and historical buildings through the gardens. Fairy-tale meets fantasy in a world of singing trees, larger than life flora, ribbons of light, giant baubles and a flickering fire garden. The famous Palm House leaps into life with a dazzling show of laser beams, jets of light and kaleidoscopic projections. At the end of the trail you are greeted by the scent of mulled wine, mince pies, enticing stalls and a traditional carousel.
