West London’s Kew Gardens glow with magical illuminations for the festive period

Christmas at Kew Gardens is closed from Dec 20, while London is under Tier 4 restrictions. 

Kew's incredible botanical gardens will be undergoing another magnificent seasonal makeover in 2020, as Christmas at Kew lights up the space’s iconic buildings and the weird and wonderful specimens that call it home.

This year the twinkling trail take a brand new route through the Rose Garden, with additional time slots and multiple entrances to help you stay safe while enjoying the enchanting displays. 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, while old favourites from previous years will also be making a triumphant return. Stroll through the Tunnel of Light and its thousands of pea-lights, warm yourself by the fire garden and gawp at the jets of light dancing above the Palm House Pond to a memorable track of festive classics.

Street food vendors will be peddling festive treats to enjoy under the stars, or you can book a delicious traditional Christmas dinner at Kew’s Botanical restaurant.
