As a member I try to come see the garden every season. Well worth the time and drive. Can't wait to go back for Christmas and night lights next year as well as fountains next year.

Visited the gardens last week to view the christmas lighting and it was well worth it. Reached the place around 4:40 and mine was a timed entry at 5:30, so had enough time to park in the vast parking lot (free) and take a short walk to the visitors' area. It wasn't numbingly cold but still chilly. Upon getting there,... More

Longwoods is a great place to visit any time of the year, but it is incredible at Christmas Time. Lots to see and do and is a great place to take children. If you live in the area i Suggest the annual pass.

Even on a cool, rainy late November day you will be glad you came here. The Christmas decorations are up and it is not at all (as usual) crowded due to the inclement weather. Must see is the "green wall," a massive conservatory and a nice cafe and a great restaurant for lunch or dinner. Combine a visit here with... More

Haven't been here in 16 yrs, came because of the Christmas lights, well they are not worth the $$$$ The Conservatory was beautiful but not worth 30 $$ Maybe in the summer but not Winter, and the lights just not worth it at all , sorry planned this trip and was so excited, but very disappointed, can see better lights...

It was my first visit to Ling wood and this was the most beautiful garden that I had ever seen! I attended the event breakfast with Santa and it was great! The breakfast was good and we managed to take some great photos with Santa. The conservatory was spectacular with such wonderful Christmas decoration and many different species of flowers.... More

It's a good place to visit in Summer but in November it isn't so interesting by my opinion. You can visit the main exhibition under the roof but all other attractions are either closed or are not so impressive in Fall. It's also closed by 5 pm (anyway it's dark to see anything there by that time and that place... More

In preparation for Thanksgiving dinner, we start our holiday by a visit and walk around Longwood Gardens. It is the first day that the conservatory is open after the Christmas decorations go up. It never fails to delight and astound.

Visited there the Day after Thanksgiving with friends and had a wonderful time!!! The outside decorations were breathtaking--especially the trains exhibit. We saw that in daylight and at night and it was equally fascinating! The pipe organ concert and sing-along was great fun and the organ is amazing! The tour through the arboretum was jaw-dropping w/ the Christams trees and... More

I have been going to Longwood gardens every few years every since I was little. I love that every season they change things up and there is something new and exciting. There is something for everyone with the children garden, tours, or relaxing tours. Love this place!
