Walk around a glittering night-time trail at Kew Gardens. The tree canopies will be lit in Christmassy colours and festooned with a million sparking lights (literally a million!).

You'll enter the wintry scene between two giant Christmas trees and a carpet of light will lead you to the scented Fire Garden (inspired by the five gold rings from The Twelve Days of Christmas). Then you'll continue past singing trees, larger than life flora, giant baubles and colour-changing reeds, before wandering across the spectacular sight of the Palm House leaping into life through a dazzling show of laser beams and kaleidoscopic projections.

There will also be an accompanying fairground with a carousel and helter skelter, where you can eat and drink some festive treats like roast chestnuts, toasted marshmallows, mulled wine and spiced cider.

Note: The event takes place in the area around the Palm House. The closest entry gate is Victoria Gate
