Kew Christmas 2022

Kew Christmas 2022

Kew’s botanical gardens are a Unesco World Heritage site located next to the river Thames. Although we have previously organised club visits to see the amazing gardens, this year we thought you might like to enjoy “Christmas at Kew”.

Date/Time: Wednesday, 16th November 2022 at 17:20

Location: Royal Botanic Gardens - Kew, Kew Road, Richmond, Surrey, TW9 3AE

Price: £19.50 per person. Retiree and guest £39

Event Organiser: Simon Russell

Kew’s magical winter trail will light up the evening sky in the gardens, where you will be able to enjoy the after-dark festivities as you discover sparkling tunnels of light, dancing lakeside reflections and trees drenched in jewel-like colour.

You will be able to enjoy a journey through the mesmerising flickering flames in the fire garden and spot larger-than-life illuminations. Along the route, delicious independent street food vendors will offer tasty festive delights, from hot food and sweet treats to spiced winter warmers and hot chocolate.

On arrival at Kew Gardens, you can enter at Victoria Gate (the recommended gate), Brentford Gate or Elizabeth Gate. The options for travelling to Kew are:

Public transport: It is a 500m walk to Victoria Gate from Kew Gardens station.
Or, from Richmond station, take the 65 bus opposite to Victoria Gate.

Car: The postcodes for each of the gates are:

  • Victoria Gate: TW9 3JR
  • Elizabeth Gate: TW9 3AB
  • Brentford Gate: TW9 3AF

The nearest car park is the Kew Ferry Lane car park which is located close to Brentford Gate and is a Pay & Display car park. If you wish to use this car park, you may want to buy a reserved parking ticket for £10 in advance of your visit. An alternative option is the Old Deer Car Park (TW9 2AZ) in Richmond on the A316 Chertsey Road (but you will then need to walk to Richmond station and take the 65 bus to Victoria Gate).
