It’s the most wonderful time of the year at Kew Gardens as the after-dark trail returns to light up the Surrey attraction.

Now in its seventh year, the winter trail takes a magical new route and includes a host of installations including glittering spiral trees, dynamic laser projections, a cascade of glowing silvery shards and changing ribbons of light.
