Wednesday 25th & Thursday 26th November 2020

As twilight falls, the magic begins… Join us for the most magical time of year at Kew Gardens as our after-dark trail lights up for 2020. Now in its 8th year, the enchanting winter trail takes a new route, leading you for the first time through the beautifully illuminated Rose Garden. Old favourites and brand new installations will sparkle and glow around you, bringing you festive cheer. Discover a glittering tunnel of bells, giant illuminated seed heads and majestic trees wrapped in light on your way to the dazzling treetop waterfall, where beams of light interplay in a breath-taking aerial dance. The iconic Temperate House will be a beautiful spectrum of Christmas colour, with dynamic laser projections enveloping the glasshouse. Stroll through the sparkling Tunnel of Light twinkling with thousands of fairy lights, and be greeted by fiery sculptures aglow with flickering flames in the scented Fire Garden. The much-anticipated Palm House Pond finale is a stunning light show playing to a memorable soundtrack of festive classics. Refreshments available throughout the evening so have yourself a merry little Christmas under the stars.
