Coming out top of the Christmas experiences we visited and filmed last year was the Kew Gardens lights experience. It is a light show, a lit walk through the park, a fun fair and a Christmas Market. Entrance is via Victoria Gate, the one two blocks from Kew Gardens Tube Station and yes you have to pay, which is why it can afford to be a better experience, but it is selling fast so this film might be the way to see it. We think you will agree, out of all the Christmas things Kew Gardens has a lot to offer all the family. Entrance is by time slot so that the crowds are controlled.
A sparkling trail of over one million twinkling lights, illuminating heritage trees and buildings through the Gardens. Here, fairy-tale meets fantasy in a world of singing trees, larger-than-life flora, ribbons of light, giant baubles, and a flickering Fire Garden. The Palm House leaps into life with a dazzling show of laser beams, jets of light and kaleidoscopic projections. Plus Santa and his elves at the North Pole village and a vintage fairground ride. Then for the adults, mulled wine. The big hit is back, the chance to toast marshmallows around the fire. See the film.
If you are stuck for unusual Christmas Presents we have found a few odd ideas as inspired by our stop in Richmond before visiting Kew. From chocolate brussel sprouts to a bicycle pizza cutter! We found them cheaper on Amazon for you.
