Kew Gardens was home to one of the very first decorated Christmas trees in England, Queen Charlotte in the 1790s dressed branches in one of the largest rooms at Kew Palace.

Kew introduce a new winter trail which the origins of the Christmas tree and Kew’s special part in the history of our traditional celebrations. The trail is one-mile  path that winds its way through the world-famous botanic gardens in a magical after-dark experience, the trail includes dancing illuminated fountains and glowing waterside reflections, a Choir of Holly Bushes, Tunnel of Lights and scented Fire Garden.

For the young ones, there is plenty of entertainment at White Peaks  with a Victorian carousel, helter skelter, and other family rides and a visit to see Santa and his elves.


Visitors can sip mulled wine while toasting marshmallows at the Mistletoe Hot Pit Stop or indulge in hot chocolate and popcorn at the Wishing Tree Sweet Corner. If you are looking for a gift, Kew’s gift shops will provide plenty of ideas.
