Christmas in the Gardens is Breathtaking!!

We went at Christmastime, and the Gardens were STUNNING! It was cold but a lot of the tour was indoors.

This place is outstanding an absolute must see! The grounds are extraordinary with lots of plant and tree variety, beautiful water features. There always seems to be a new surprise around every turn. DuPont was a master when it came to designing this place. A new water feature will be completed in 2017. I will be going back for that... More

Beautifully gathered and expertly cared for trees, shrubs and flowers from all over the world. At time breathtaking and at others just deeply relaxing and refreshing. A tiny taste of what the world will look like when men and women are once again working in harmony with the creator of all there is.

We recently spent a half day visiting Longwood Gardens and overall enjoyed the experience. Tickets for the Gardens Admission were $20 each. The walk down the Flower Garden path was nice, but most spectacular was the Italian Water Garden. The conservatory was well laid out with many beautiful flowers in bloom but a couple of areas were under maintenance. If... More

If you are a gardening enthusiast it is a must to visit Longwood at least once. A few hours aren't really enough to take it all in. We only had several hours and I can see where doing the conservatories would be one day, and the outdoor gardens another. The staff are helpful. Be prepared to do some walking to... More

We toured Longwood Gardens and then spent the evening listening to the Philly Pops in the amphitheater. It was a terrific way to kick off the summer. I highly recommend a vita or revisit.

The scenery was beautiful, but I really enjoyed learning about the Du Pont family and the origins of the garden.

If you're in the area, make sure to visit. The outdoor gardens and the conservatory are magnificent. Also, if you have time and like to hike/walk, make sure to see the meadow...a new attraction. I logged 7 miles one day just strolling through the meadow. Wonderful trails, edged with wildflowers in their natural state.

This was my first time to see Longwood Gardens and I really enjoyed it. The grounds are beautiful and the staff was extremely friendly. Even though the main fountains are under renovation, there was still plenty to see and do. I really appreciate that this place encourages visitors to enjoy the area (i.e. walk/lay/play on the grass, sit on benches,... More
