Kingston Christmas Market

We start our day with a visit to Kingston Christmas Market, aiming to arrive at approx 13.30. Each year, the whole town centre of Kingston upon Thames transforms into the magical Kingston Christmas market spreading throughout the Ancient Market Place and surrounding pedestrianised streets. Featuring over 100 stalls in beautiful wooden chalets and a heated marquee selling festive goodies, arts, crafts and decorations, you’ll be sure to pick up some fabulous gifts for all the family at Kingston Christmas Market.

The market will feature two large outdoor bar areas serving up steaming mugs of mulled wine along with classic German-style street food and street entertainment allowing you to really soak up the festive atmosphere.

We depart Kingston in good time to arrive at Kew Gardens for 17.20 entrance to the Illuminated Trail.


Christmas at Kew

Now in its sixth year, the 2018 winter trail will be bigger than ever before, with over a million twinkling pea-lights and thousands of laser beams. Walk under welcoming arches into a world festooned with seasonal cheer and wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour. Futher details of all that awaits us at Kew TBC.

We will depart for home approx 19.00

This itinerary has been produced well ahead of the 2018 holiday season. All content was correct at that time but could have been subject to change in the meantime. We reserve the right to make any changes necessary without prior notification.


Access to the Illuminated Trail

The trail is just over one mile in length. Whilst the route is designed so that it can be solely viewed from tarmac flat paths, some interactive elements may invite the audience onto grass where additional pedestrian matting will be provided.


Important Event Information

Please be aware that this event is held outdoors and there are no covered areas during the trail, so do ensure you have sufficient warm and waterproof clothing. In some areas the lighting will be low level as this is part of the experience.
