Category: Family Fun Date: Monday, 01 January 0001 Christmas at Kew is likely to be a very special event this December, with the gardens fully embracing the festive spirit by setting up a Christmas village, market, grotto and many more special attractions. This year is a notable one for the area as for the first time, they will remain open after dark in order to showcase a magical trail through the depths of the forest, illuminated with fairy lights. The much-loved landmarks of one of London's more extensive green areas are brought to life with a festive theme, and even regular visitors to the gardens will be astonished and amazed at the transformation. Children will be particularly keen to experience a ride on the carousel, and of course, everyone is invited to receive their first gift of the season from Santa in his grotto. Christmas at Kew opens November 28th. Retire to the Egerton House Hotel after an evening spent exploring the gardens. Book in with the Magical London package to ensure your accommodation is just as festive.
