The mother of all light trails, Christmas at Kew has become a key date in London’s festive calendar as the weird and wonderful foliage in the 300-acre botanic garden is lit up with glistening lights and illuminations. The route will take you past glass houses emblazoned with kaleidoscopic projections, through shimmering tunnels of light and trees drenched in jewel-like colour.
Excellent news for all you Christmas enthusiasts: the season to be jolly is right around the corner. And unlike the last couple of unorthodox years, there’s absolutely loads going on this time round.
That’s right, all the fairy-light festooned Christmas markets? They’re back. ‘Alpine’ private dining pop-ups, increasingly outlandish Christmas sandwiches and OTT light displays – they’re all back in action and ready to dazzle you in 2022.
Whether you feel like gliding gracefully around one of the city’s winter skating rinks or belting out ‘Hark the Herald’ at a wholesome carol service, there are all sorts to do in London this winter. And because we’re high on merry Christmas spirit, we’ve pulled together some of our top festive picks.
We’ll be updating this page with events for Christmas 2022 as they are announced.
