Experience the majestic quality of Dale Chihuly’s colours and forms when his glass artworks are illuminated under the evening sky. Relax as you stroll around Kew Gardens after dark – both out in the Gardens and inside some of the glasshouses and galleries – and enjoy a rotating line up of live musicians to complement the atmosphere. Top off your night with a tasty tipple and hot and cold food, served from one of our three restaurants.

As the sun goes down, the lights come up
If you time your visit just right, you can watch the sun set over Kew Gardens and see Chihuly’s artwork glow under the evening sky.
