You will begin your journey as you enter through a botanic wonderland via two giant Christmas trees festooned with ribbon as the sweet aroma of mulled wine, hot chocolate and roasting chestnuts fill the air.

Glittering trees dripping with giant crystals will bring the Gardens to life, as colour changing reeds rise high into the night sky and visitors pass through a Tunnel of Lights animated by a staggering 63,000
pixels creating patterns and pictures to a well-known Christmas soundtrack.

Along the trail, the whole family will get the chance to enjoy Kew karaoke at the Christmas Juke Box, before coming face to face with an avenue of floral installations creating a shimmering Crystal Lawn.

For the romantic in all of us, take a break at Mistletoe Moments before carrying on with your walk as you head on to Kew Gardens Palm House Pond which bursts into life with an explosion of streams of light, brightly coloured laser beams and flickering orbs that dance in time to Christmas Classics.

The final part of this amazing Christmas event is a visit to the North Pole village which boasts Santa and his elves.

As the winter trail comes to an end, visitors will finish the trail under the stars while toasting marshmallows, before admiring a stunning range of Christmas gifts for all the family at Victoria Plaza.

The magic begins on 23rd November 2016 and ends on 2nd Jan 2017 with prices tarting from £10. This is the fourth Christmas at Kew and in our opinion one not to be missed.
