Illuminating Kew Winter Special
Includes entrance to Kew Gardens Illuminations
The magnificent gardens at Kew get a beautiful seasonal makeover once more, as Christmas at Kew Gardens brings illuminations to light up the buildings, trails and planting. The mile-long trail will lead visitors past two huge Christmas trees, a scented garden and all kinds of nature-inspired lights. Santa’s Snowflake Grotto returns and there’ll be a vintage carousel, Christmas gifts and traditional festive nibbles and drinks.
Late November & December 2019 and 2020
Suggested itinerary by Coach for 1 night
Travel to London and Kew Illuminations
Arrive in London, and visit Kew Gardens, where fairy-tale meets fantasy in a world of singing trees, larger-than-life flora, ribbons of light, giant baubles, and a flickering Fire Garden. The Palm House leaps into life with a dazzling show of laser beams, jets of light and kaleidoscope projections. The trail is very popular and entry is by timed entry ticket. The trail opens at 5pm and closes at 10pm. You can choose from eight session times. Visits are timed at 30-minute intervals from 5pm until 8pm and the last session starts at 8.15pm.
Continue to your hotel for dinner and overnight.
