What a treasure! We were just a bit early in Spring for lots of the flowers and some of the trees but it was still amazing with what was blooming outside. If you are truly ambitious and fit, you can spend the entire day here and walk all of the paths. There a quite a few. Also, right now, early... More

I cannot say enough good things about Longwood Gardens. It is truly my happy place. The grounds and conservatory are absolutely beautiful, and the people who work there are very kind and helpful. I used to go here at least once a week during my maternity leave with my son just to relax and soak in all the beauty, and... More

We enjoyed the day here with our out of town house guests. Even though it was early in the season and not too much in bloom yet on the grounds, we enjoyed a beautiful, warm day. The inside part is beautiful always. The construction around the fountains didn't bother us. We almost didn't go there because the website does not... More

We went today to Longwood Gardens and enjoyed ourselves very much. Although the season is early, the conservatory is full of blooming flowers, exotic plants, beautiful architecture, and generally excellent gardens which are meticulously well-tended. We were extremely impressed and enjoyed visiting very very much. Highly recommended!

Wanted to do something different for our anniversary, so we went to Longwood Gardens. The grounds are beautiful and spacious. We truly enjoyed a relaxing stroll around the gardens. There are outdoor displays and displays inside under cover. There are trails and treehouses to explore. There is also a Children's Garden and you can walk through the Pierce Dupont house.... More

If you love horticulture, this is your destination. You will spend all day at this 1,000 acre facility. The conservatory is incredible, with every kind of flower, plant, tree, you could imagine. The flowers are so beautiful, and the trees so unique, you will appreciate having digital photography, if you want to take pictures as you will be snapping all... More

My wife and I spent several hours here on one of the first really nice days of spring and we could easily have spent lots more time enjoying the beauty and serenity of the place. The gardens are truly breathtaking. The plantings in the conservatory are amazing. A great way to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle... More

The arboretum was its usual great. The disappointment was the fountains were being renovated and it won't open till 2017. The rest of the grounds were between blooms there were some tulips and hyacinths.

We enjoy going to Longwood Gardens as a family. With boys, they are not as interested in spending a lot of time viewing the indoor flower areas, but they love walking the paths and playing in the tree houses. There is a great children's garden too. It is spectacular at night during the holidays with all of the lights, but... More

Excellent way to spend a spring day! The gardens were not really in bloom but we could have a lot of fun exploring the grounds. The Conservatory is just amazingly beautiful! It's surely worth a visit and we will make plans to return later in Spring.
