Very beautiful place, take your time and enjoy the color and smells of all the greenery and flowers. Each room seems to have its own personality and climate! Highly recommend.

Longwood Gardens is a magnificent public garden to visit any time of the year. The conservatory is amazing and changes throughout the year from the holiday exhibit to the orchid show to the fall Chrysanthemum Festival. If possible, try to visit on a weekday as weekends and holidays can be extremely crowded.

Have visited the Gardens numerous times over the years at different times of the year and viewed their seasonal and lighted water displays. This is a wonderful place to visit for all ages and especially for the whole family. This place will put you in good mood any time of year and you can't help learn something new about nature's...

This is a beautiful place. There are many buildings with floral displays everywhere. They have concerts there as well. We saw Oliver Mtukudzi. The room is surrounded by flowers, however the sound was not that great and the seating was all on the floor so if someone tall sat in front of you, that was it. All the rows behind... More

In the past year, my husband and I accompanied by another couple have gone to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square during 3 different seasons. Each season at Longwood offers very worthwhile and yet different plants, displays and activities. We should have considered buying a season pass on the first visit as we paid separately each time and the pass or... More

We spent an entire day at Longwood gardens and wish we lived close enough to spend many more. This place is a stunning collection of natural wonders and the talent that keeps it should be commended. The history of the family who began it is an interesting and informative tour in the original farm house and the world's largest conservatory... More
