Blogmas #10: Kew Garden Christmas Lights

Open until 2nd January Kew Garden's annual Christmas Light Display is well worth visiting! 



More info HERE 

It takes about 2 hours to walk round and enjoy the full splendour of lights on show. 
There are stands mid-way through the trail to buy mulled wine (£5), mulled cider and other festive treats (one mince pie for £3) as well as a Hog Roast (£8) or BBQ. Buy a gourmet marshmallow (£1.50) and toast it too- they delish! It's all quite over-priced but gets you in the festive spirit!

You are given a time slot with your ticket which meant that the place was busy but not overcrowded and you could get a good view of everything. 

Here are some of of the pictures I took on route round the trail. 

Video/Light Projection, musical singing trees, atmospheric spot lit trees and a tunnel of light were just some of the highLIGHTs on display. 

The Trees took on another form when lit at night.
