Absolutely lovely gardens! Always impeccable and if nearby the gardens change so much during seasons - never disappointed when I've stopped! Well worth the visit anytime you can!

Our visit here on an overcast day in mid May was an absolutely an outstanding experience. The variety of plant specimens is simply spectacular. The layout and design of the walkways keeps one completely entertained for hours on the general "walk about". The huge climate...More

I have been to Longwood Gardens many times for both the springtime orchid show as well as the Christmas display. The orchid show in March (I combine with the Philadelphia Flower Show), is a wonderful break from winter. The greenhouses are an oasis- tropical smells...More

The day turned out quite hot but there's lots of shady areas to enjoy. The gardens were beautiful. The new fountains were entertaining. The conservatories were lovely as usual. Wish we lived closer to make membership doable.

We did not allow enough time for this beautiful garden. You can give the exhibits in the center of the complex a quick run through in 2 or 3 hours, but you miss the opportunity to "stop and smell the roses." Plus, there are numerous...More

Everything is so beautiful. So much to see in one day. My wife and I felt like kids in a candy shop. We decided to rent mobility scooters as she has arthritis and cannot walk much. We highly recommend them for anyone that cannot walk...More

Our work team visited Longwood Garden recently for the afternoon. The grounds are gorgeous and we all enjoyed just strolling through the Gardens. The Gardens are extremely well-maintained. This is the perfect place for a relaxing afternoon.
