✨ New for 2018
Now in its sixth year, our 2018 winter trail is bigger than ever before, with over a million twinkling pea-lights and thousands of laser beams. Our sculptural Fire Garden, a vast Canopy of Light, gigantic flowers, and a shimmering lakeside flotilla are just some of the highlights in store.
🌙 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.
🍷Treats under starry skies
Complete your trail with tempting treats under the stars – a spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate whilst the aroma of roasting chestnuts and toasted marshmallows fills the air, and browse Kew’s well-stocked shop for that extra special gift.
For the young ones, don’t miss the vintage fairground rides and look out for Santa and his elves along the way.
