Just went to this beautiful garden on Sept. 24. Spent all day there. The garden is awesome. You will need at least 2 hours to see it. We spent more time than that. There is an Italian Water Garden, many flower gardens, topiary, a fountain with water dancing to a Sousa time and conservatory with with many rooms, each oneA... More

The beautiful Longwood Gardens experience was really enhanced by the addition of Nightscapes. It is a program that should not be missed. The beauty along with fragrance of the landscape is transformative. The music being played during the light shows really made the experience magical. Visiting the Beer Garden and Cafe for some dinner, as the sun was beginning to... More

The garden is beautiful and the light show superb, however there is room to improve. Too many people allowed in, as a result the pathways became conjested and bottle necks occurred when people stopped in there tracks to watch the light show. Children's strollers should not be allowed at the evening show. We ate in the cafe, food overpriced, not... More

Was honestly and unfortunately unimpressed with the quality of the Longwood gardens nightscapes installation. All the photos and hype surrounding it were just hype. The walking path boasted a strong beginning and finished weak. Would be neat for kids but I've seen some pretty amazing laser shows so I was disappointed with this one. Would go back though to visit... More

This is an amazing place. I went a few weeks ago with my husband and adult daughter, neither of whom is much interested in gardens. We spent nearly six hours going from garden to garden, each as fantastic as the one that came before, and they never complained or said they were ready to leave. They were, to quote another... More

We have visited the Gardens many times during daylight but this light show was very different. The combination of light, music and images projected on the trees & bushes was amazing! Do not miss the large lake--the BEST of the show!

Nightscape at Longview gardens is a really unique experience. If you go on Thurday night you might be treated to some excellent entertainment at the beer gardens as we were. then you can amble through the interesting lite up landscapes some of which has whimsical music to accompany the light show. Lots of fun!
