Returning for its eighth year, our enchanting winter trail takes a new route, leading you for the first time through the beautifully illuminated Rose Garden. Old favourites and brand new light installations will sparkle and glow around you, bringing festive cheer to you, your family and friends. Discover a glittering tunnel of bells, giant illuminated seed heads and majestic trees wrapped in light on your way to the dazzling treetop waterfall, where beams of light interplay in a breath-taking aerial dance. The iconic Temperate House will be a beautiful spectrum of Christmas colour, with dynamic laser projections enveloping the glasshouse. Stroll through the sparkling Tunnel of Light twinkling with thousands of fairy lights, and be greeted by fiery sculptures aglow with flickering flames in the scented Fire Garden. The much-anticipated Palm House Pond finale returns with a stunning light show playing to a memorable soundtrack of festive classics. Flavour your festive fun with tasty treats from our street food vendors or book a delicious traditional Christmas dinner at Kew’s Botanical restaurant. And have yourself a merry little Christmas with festive drinks and hot chocolate under the stars.
