Come and have a wander around Kew's glittering night-time trail.

You'll enter it between two giant Christmas trees and stroll beneath tree canopies drenched in seasonal colour. A carpet of light will lead you to the scented Fire Garden, which was inspired by the five gold rings from 'The Twelve Days of Christmas'. Then you'll continue past glittering trees decorated with giant crystals and colour-changing reeds, before entering the beautiful Tunnel of Lights.

You'll also find a woodland walk with larger-than-life candles, and see the Palm House Pond spring to life with brightly coloured lasers,.

You'll be able to have a go on vintage rides like a carousel and helter skelter, and try plenty of festive food and drink like roast chestnuts, toasted marshmallows, mulled wine and spiced cider.

The young ones will be able to see Santa and his elves at the North Pole village.
