About the event

This Christmas, for the very first time, we open our doors after dark for you to discover an illuminated trail through our enchanted winter landscape. Kew’s unique family experience offers something for everyone at this festive time of year.

The Illuminated Trail

Discover Kew after dark... the trees will light your way.

Explore the one-mile-long illuminated trail as it winds its way through the Gardens, casting light into hidden places off the beaten track, under tree-top canopies and onto dancing lakeside ripples. You will be able to interact with a captivating light, sound and landscape. Linger by the lake, meander through the Mediterranean Garden, gaze at the Garden of Fire and wonder at the iconic Palm House drenched in colour. From the delicate and twinkling to the grand and spectacular, Kew’s much loved landmarks are brought to life as you have never seen them before.

The Christmas Village

Before you start the illuminated trail, begin your adventure at the Christmas village located at Victoria Gate. There’s something fun for all the family from Santa to festive nibbles, Christmas shopping and nightly live Christmas carols.

Santa’s Woodland Grotto and Rides

Take the kids to Santa’s Woodland Grotto before popping along for a spin on the Victorian carousel and family rides.

Separate charges apply for Santa’s Woodland Grotto, the Victorian carousel and family rides.

Boutique Christmas Market

Wander through the boutique Christmas market, filled with an assortment of hand-picked, irresistible gifts and tempting treats for foodies.

The Christmas market is a unique collaboration with creative taste-makers We Make London and local designer/maker craft traders. Traditional wooden chalets will host a selection of hand-picked, irresistible gifts and tempting treats for foodies representing London’s thriving and creative market scene.
