This Christmas, for the very first time, Kew Gardens opens after hours with a one-mile illuminated trail through its enchanting winter landscape. As part of the Christmas village which kicks off the illuminated trail, We Make London are pleased to be collaborating with the Kew team to put on a boutique Christmas market and a special We Make London popup boutique, filled with an assortment of hand-picked products many of which are handmade in the UK.
"The Christmas market is a unique collaboration with creative taste-makers We Make London and local designer/maker craft traders. Traditional wooden chalets will host a selection of hand-picked, irresistible gifts and tempting treats for foodies representing London’s thriving and creative market scene."
