We enjoy the seasonal outdoor plantings and activities as well as the indoor presentations and entertainment. We check their schedule in advance to see what is going on and include them in our regular activities.

You won't want to rush through this incredible garden estate. There is so much beauty to see, and who wants to rush through flowers?! The smells are amazing, the atmosphere delightful, and the history interesting. No matter what time of year you go, you'll want to take your time winding through the gorgeous blooms.

've been coming here since I was a kid and I absolutely love it! You can go during the spring summer or even the winter for the Christmas light festival. All of the gardens are well marinated and magical. My favorite part is the water fountain light show set to music. I could spend hours exploring and getting lost in... More

With a student pass, this is well worth the price! Beautiful botanical gardens with other amenities! This place is great for any nature-lover with a significant other, friends, or family. Get a pass and go more than once.

A visit to Longwood Gardens during the Christmas season is a MUST! We went the week just after Christmas at 2PM. Very little crowds to compete with. Going later in the day permits you to see the decorated exterior trees come to life when they are lit for the evening. Our visit was extra special because it started to snow... More

I have visited gardens in many places, both in the US and abroad. Longwood Gardens is define lay a do not miss experience. The outdoor gardens are always in bloom from early spring to fall, and the conservatory is a joy all year round. In December, the Christmas lights and conservatory decorations are something to behold. I guess I cannot... More

Things outside were not quite in full bloom as it had been a terrible winter and we were there in early April. Regardless the grounds are spectacular. Do not fail to tour the conservatory. Some 4 acres under glass of the most amazing floral displays I've ever seen. Looks and smells like a fairytale. My hats off to the entire... More
