KEW at Christmas, Richmond, London

Kew at Christmas is to feature a new trail this year, illuminated by a waterfall of lights cascading from the towering 18 metre-high Treetop Walkway in the garden’s arboretum. The route will include showstoppers such as the recently restored Temperate House and the largest surviving Victorian glasshouse in the world, which will form the canvas for a kaleidoscopic laser show. Complete the trail with tempting treats under the stars; a spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate whilst the aroma of roasting chestnuts and toasted marshmallows fill the air.

 

Please Note: The trail is approximately 2km long. Whilst every effort is made to make the trail fully accessible by its very nature it will cover some difficult terrain with several varying gradients. At this event the Palace and other attractions will be closed.

 

Updated information:

Last year, a new cycle lane was installed on Kew Road. These works have resulted in the removal of all parking, including coach drop off and pick up points along the road, which served as access to our main entrance at Victoria Gate. Kew is supportive of the cycle lane initiative as a positive step toward a greener borough, but at the same time we have been working with Richmond Council to ensure that alternative solutions for coach access would be provided.

 

The only solution now available to us for coach drop off and pick up for Christmas at Kew, is to use Elizabeth Gate on Kew Green. As you may know, Elizabeth Gate is not part of the illumination trail and as such, the walk from there to the event is approximately 15 - 20 minutes, or 0.7 miles.
