Kew Gardens Lights Up Christmas!

img_8227jpgAs previously mentioned, I honestly believe that everyone who lives, visits or even thinks about London, must go see Kew Gardens. It is incredible.

Also as previously mentioned, it took me four years to get there, having only gone in July. So of course, I missed out on years of Christmas at Kew, a festive light spectacular, and that’s an understatement. Here is what the website says about it:

A botanical wonderland awaits, with brightly coloured laser beams dancing over water, a Tunnel of Lights, scented Fire Garden and fairy-tale avenues of flora. Santa and his elves will be in the North Pole village, plus favourite vintage rides, Christmas gifts and traditional festive fare.

They’re not lying. It’s been running for four years and from the beauty I saw, it may just run forever. And in case you wanted to see what I saw (and I figure you do, since you’ve made the journey all the way here to this blog), let me share with you a collection of some of the amazing things we saw that faithful night:

Lazer Light Tunnels.


Glowing Blossoms.

If you’ve never been to Kew Gardens, this is the perfect time to go. And if you’ve never been to Kew at Christmas, do it now, buy tickets, make your life better.

Because, as you know, around this time of the year, it really is a wonderful life.
