Time Out Says

Enter a botanical world brimming with seasonal cheer when over a million lights and festive sounds return to Kew Gardens for another festive season. Christmas at Kew has become a key date in London’s festive calendar, with plenty of Londoners flocking to the 300-acre World Heritage Site to discover glistening tunnels of light, dancing lakeside reflections and trees drenched in jewel-like colour. As usual, there’ll be plenty more to enjoy besides the larger-than-life illuminations, from warming winter snacks to a grotto where you can say hello to Father C himself. It’s never too early to plan the perfect Christmas activity, especially given how quickly Christmas at Kew tends to sell out, so move quickly to secure a magical festive visit to the largest botanical garden in the world.
