This Easter, experience the wonderful world of the Moomins with exciting family-friendly activities and events. Explore the hidden depths of Kew Gardens on an interactive trail culminating at the magical Moomin Festival Camp in the wild woodland of the Natural Area. Take part in craft workshops while you sample the Moomins’ beloved pancakes and visit The Hemulen's Herbarium to find out more about your favourite spring flowers and plant conservation.
Originally created in the 1940s, the Moomins are a family of adventurous and nature-loving creatures from the culturally iconic storybooks by Finnish writer and artist Tove Jansson.
In place of the Easter Sunday Easter Egg Hunt, this year we’ll be giving away delicious Lindt chocolate treats at the gates on Easter Sunday.
