Happy 1st of December- and I’m thrilled to start sharing festive content with you!✨✨✨
I wanted to visit Christmas at @kewgardens for ages but never managed to book tickets. This year the dreams came true, and I must sincerely tell that this is a fantastic experience. This is a three km long trail with different musical installations, a small food market, merry go round, Santa house and with the main shop open late. Beehive looks absolutely extraterrestrial and some alleys have Hogwards vibes. But my absolute fav were the singing fountains🥹🥹🥹
