See the Gardens light up for an unforgettable after-dark festive trail of lights. 22 November 2018 to 5 January 2019.
Now in its sixth year, we are all fans of the 2018 winter trail – which for 2018 will be bigger than ever before, with over a million twinkling pea-lights and thousands of laser beams. Walk under welcoming arches into a world festooned with seasonal cheer and wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour.
Laser Garden and moonlit woods
New this year, enter the moonlit woods and step into a Laser Garden where refracting lines of light playfully bounce across the branches.
Then stroll towards the Lake and pause at the waterside reflections made by a festive flotilla of hundreds of glowing boats gently bobbing on the shimmering surface.
Glimpse the sculptural Fire Garden as it flickers and crackles in the distance, whilst the much-loved pea-lit tunnel is re-imagined as a vast Canopy of Light.
Watch the Palm House Pond finale springing to life with brightly criss-crossing colours, water screen projections and jumping light jets that dance to seasonal classics.
Treats under starry skies
Complete your trail with tempting treats under the stars â€“ a spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate whilst the aroma of roasting chestnuts and toasted marshmallows fills the air, and browse Kewâ€™s well-stocked shop for that extra special gift.
