A tunnel of lights, scented fire garden and laser beams over water await visitors to the mile-long illuminated trail that forms the centrepiece of Christmas at Kew
. The beautiful Kew Gardens
open their doors after dark to reveal a walkway peppered with giant light sculptures, light projections on the Palm House and fire garden, scented with pine, frankincense and cedar. This year Santa and his elves make a welcome return to the North Pole village, and there will be vintage rides, Christmas gifts and traditional festive fare.
