Cancellation, exchanges & refunds

Please be sure that you have chosen the right entry gate, date and time slot at the time of making your booking as Kew and See Tickets are not able to offer exchanges or refunds on incorrectly bought tickets, once they have been purchased. We are also not able to offer refunds/duplicates on unwanted/lost tickets.

Inevitably bad weather can affect any open-air event. If we have to cancel the event as it unsafe to proceed, visitors will be offered an alternative date. No refunds will be offered simply if the weather is inclement. Any decision to cancel the event will be taken at 2pm on the day of an event.
If the event is cancelled by us due to weather and guests are not able to attend an alternative night offered, then a refund will be considered on a case by case basis. Where a refund is due, the ticket must be returned within 28 days of the event due date.

Your event ticket does not include day visitor entry to the Gardens. Christmas at Kew visitors can purchase a reduced entry price for a day visit to Kew Gardens.

All daytime visitors will need to exit the gates when the gardens close at 3pm (last entry 2pm) then re-enter at their allocated trail entry time for Christmas at Kew.
