Starts in 13 Days, 23 Hours
20th December 2019
Join us on this festive day out and spend time starting (or finishing) your Christmas Shopping, or enjoying lunch and some festive tipples in and around the Oxford St/Regent St area before making our way to Kew Gardens.
A magical new route. 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. Gather around the fire-pit with family and friends to toast marshmallows and end the evening browsing Kew’s gift shops. Why not pick up some treats for the journey home?
For the young and young at heart there’s a Victorian carousel, helter skelter and other family rides. Don’t forget to look out for Santa and his elves along the way.
The trail is approximately 2.6km long and takes an estimated 75 minutes to walk. The route is designed so that it can be viewed from the pathways. Some interactive elements may invite the audience onto grass where we will provide additional matting. If you have specific access needs please call 020 8332 5655. We will do our best to accommodate you.
Wheelchairs, mobility scooters and buggies:
Christmas at Kew is an event presented in the natural landscape. Whilst every effort is made to make the trail fully accessible, by its very nature it will cover some difficult terrain with a number of varying gradients. These areas may be challenging during wet weather.
Wheelchairs are available to borrow on a first come first served basis, these cannot be reserved.
