Kew Garden’s winter nighttime decorations are reopening again, with a sparkling trail of over one million twinkling lights, illuminating heritage trees and buildings.

The nighttime lights had been running for a few weeks but were closed when the Tier4 lockdown was announced. They’ve now had confirmation that, with a few changes, they can reopen again, and the remaining tickets will go on sale on Monday (28th Dec).

Kew Gardens will be adding extra safety measures to the trail, including asking visitors to wear a face-covering at all times, apart from under 11s and those who are exempt. They will also increase the stewarding on the trail.

Depending on the date you choose, off-peak or peak pricing will apply. The trail operates on a timed admission between 4.20pm and 8pm. The gardens close at 10pm.

Tickets will go on sale here.

The winter lights normally close early in January, but this winter will be open until 24th January 2021 to give more time for socially distanced visitors to see them.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Pardon me, but isn’t Tier 4.. “Stay at home”?

    “In general, you must not meet socially or carry out any activities with another person. However, you can exercise or meet in a public outdoor place with people you live with, your support bubble (or as part of a childcare bubble), or with one other person.

    You should minimise time spent outside your home. “

    Brian you always have a little moan! Isn’t it good people are outside, spaced out and have something to do? Amazing for the physical and mental health of Londoners.
