Christmas at KEW - a festive evening

As twilight falls, the magic begins!! This Christmas for the very first time, Kew Gardens opens after hours with an illuminated trail through its enchanting winter landscape. We will enjoy the 1 mile illuminated trail as it winds its way through the botanic gardens.There will also be a Victorian Carousel with carols & seasonal music to get us in the festive mood. We can also wander through the boutique Christmas market & enjoy some festive treats.
Estimated walk time is 75minutes, with timed entrance.
You will need to purchase your own ticket for 7:15pm time slot. There will be an opportunity for a drink in one of the local pubs afterwards. Tickets are priced at £12.50 plus booking fee.
 
Meet at the main entrance of Kew Gardens at 7:00pm

    Thanks Elaine - it was something different - but as Liz hints - the darkness tended to separate us somewhat!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
