Kew Gardens

Hi all.
Has anyone been to the Christmas light show at Kew Gardens? I'm sorely tempted, but at a cost of £16-£20 per person, it seems a bit overpriced. If anyone's been and can review, would be much appreciated.
TIA

Blimey, the last time I went to Kew it cost a penny!

Thanks Sunnypad, much appreciated. I think that's tipped me into not going!

Haha, I remember those days. 1d entry and then trying to sneak a bit of bamboo out through the turnstiles.

Great pictures Ian. They've certainly upped the ante since I was last there. :)

PD
Thanks for the links. Unfortunately the Kew link is for the press only so I'm unable to enlarge what appear to be impressive shots.

Cheers
