“Beautiful Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We were here right after Christmas to see the light display in the evening. Wonderful place to walk around outside. Also had displays indoors and a nice gift shop. A bit overpriced at $10.

“Great place to spend a few hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Not only are the plant displays very interesting, but the tea room restaurant has good food and a relaxing environment. Good place to take out of town guests.

“Pretty but a bit overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The flowers are pretty in the spring, and the Christmas lights are nice in the winter. Admission fees are a bit steep (10-12 per person if I remember correctly). The restaurant on site is not worth going to. They had a really cool butterfly exhibit there this summer.

“beautiful holiday experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We visited the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden for the Festival of Lights exhibit while in Richmond during the winter holidays. It was stunning! There were crowds of people enjoying themselves outside on a beautiful winter evening. Highly recommended!

“Beautiful gardens and grounds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The plants and architecture are stunnning. During the holidays they have the "Garden Festival of Lights" which is a Richmond tradition. The summer concert series "Groovin' in the Garden" brings top notch performers in for outdoor concerts.
