Take an enchanting journey into a glittering wonderland with Christmas at Kew at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew.
Sunday We depart and travel to London. On arrival at our hotel the remainder of the afternoon will be free, until we depart the hotel early evening and make the short journey to the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew. Christmas at Kew is a unique night-time experience, as the one mile glittering trail winds its way through the world famous botanic gardens in a magical after dark experience. Wander between glowing waterside reflections, illuminated fountains and grand glasshouses as Kew’s iconic architecture and unique tree canopies are brought to life drenched in Christmas colour. We will return to our hotel later this evening.
Monday We depart after breakfast and travel home via the Hyde Park Winter Wonderland. Throughout late November and December the section of Hyde Park near Hyde Park Corner is transformed into a Winter Wonderland, complete with fairground rides, giant wheel, circus, Christmas market, food and drink stalls, Santa's grotto and, of course, an ice rink. It's the 11th consecutive year that the Winter Wonderland has come to Hyde Park and it's already a favourite in many Londoners' calendars. We depart later this afternoon to make our journey home.
All visitors are reminded that this is an outdoor event and the weather may be inclement, so please wear appropriate outdoor clothing and footwear. It is anticipated that walking the illuminated trail will take approximately 75 minutes, but you are free to spend more time on the trail if you wish.
