Preview: Make the ultimate festive visit to Christmas at Kew

It’s that time of year when we head out in search of ‘something Christmassy to do’, and few places capture the festive magic quite like Kew Gardens.

Now in its third year, Christmas at Kew is a must for anyone looking to indulge in the fairytale of the festive season.

What to expect? Well you can wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in Christmas hues and gaze at glowing waterside reflections as clusters of illuminated fountains dance in an explosion of colour set against the iconic Palm House.

Then walk through playful ribbons of light, count the Christmas trees festooned with seasonal cheer and listen to the Choir of the Holly Bushes as they twinkle in time to festive music.

Don’t forget to stroll down the avenue of larger than life winter flora and stop at the scented Fire Garden for a moment of reflection. Take time with family and friends to ponder the year almost over and look forward to the year to come. 

Sounds pretty lovely, eh?
