As twilight falls, the magic begins…Now in its fourth year, Kew Gardens new 2016 winter trail is a botanical wonderland inspired by the garden itself, as the trees, temples and glasshouses of Kew are playfully lit and all aglow.
There’s something for everyone at this festive time of year as the one mile sparkling path winds its way through the world-famous gardens in a magical after dark experience, with brightly coloured laser beams dancing over water, a Tunnel of Lights, scented Fire Garden and fairy-tale avenues of flora. Santa and his elves will be at the North Pole village, plus favourite vintage rides, Christmas gifts and traditional festive fare.
