November 25 to January 2. 

Wander beneath tree canopies dressed in festive finery and see glowing waterside reflections as clusters of illuminated fountains create an explosion of colour, set against the iconic Palm House.

Walk through playful ribbons of light, hear the Choir of the Holly Bushes as they twinkle in time to the seasonal music and stroll down an avenue of giant lit-up snowdrops and Christmas roses.

You can also enjoy mulled wine and roasted chestnuts at the fragrant Fire Garden or find unique gifts at Kew's two curated shops.

Christmas at Kew opens at 5pm, with timed entrance at half hour intervals to 8.15pm, and closes at 10pm.
