Like little kids at Christmas mum and I almost skipped through the entrance, cameras poised ready to snap.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you’ll know that Christmas at Kew is a tradition for my mum and I. Check out last years here.
I love seeing what they come up with each year and this my favourite was this Day’s of Christmas inspired installation.
We picked up some mulled cider from one of the stands and were tempted by some of the tasty treats but I was holding out for something else.
Earlier in the year mum and I went to see the Hive at Kew and I was interested to see if they would incorporate the huge steel structure into the illuminations; they did not disappoint.
Glowing like a ball of fire slightly hidden by trees transformed into an orange orb stood The Hive, it’s low hum drawing you in.
We rounded the corner and were greeted with a welcome sight. Marshmallows ready for toasting on opening fires, perfect just as the cold is seeping into your fingertips.
After warming our hands and wiping the sticky remains from our mouths we continued on our way for the grand finale.
Like last year the trail ended at the Glass House with a gorgeous light show mirrored in the lake.
There’s not long left to get tickets so make sure you book as soon as possible to enjoy the magic.
