Christmas at Kew 2013
During Christmas 2013 we opened our doors after dark for the very first time, taking visitors on a magical journey along an illuminated trail through the Gardens. With its boutique market and Victorian carousel, Christmas at Kew offered festive fun for all the family.
The IncrEdibles festival was a voyage of exploration through the fascinating world of edible plants. It ran from 25 May to 3 November 2013. Among the many attractions was the Tutti Frutti boating experience on the Palm House pond.
