We have always enjoyed Longwood! The orchid show in the middle of winter is an amazing splash of color and happiness! We always learn something new on our visits. We were fascinated at the Pierce-Du Pont house. As a side note, If you are a Pokémon Go collector, we caught many new ones while walking around!

Longwood Gardens is a wonderful place to visit year round. When it's warm the outdoor gardens and grounds are perfect for long and short walks. When it's chilly outside the beautiful plants and flowers in the conservatory are a welcomed reminder of spring. Check out the list of musical offerings. There are some wonderful concerts available. The children's garden is... More

We have visited Longwood gardens during 3 of the different displays. One is more spectacular than the next. The orchid exhibit is amazing, as is the spring tulip display, as well as Christmas. There are several areas for little ones to play in. I would recommend bringing or renting a stroller. There is a lot of walking. It is also... More

My children and I enjoy the Christmas lights and displays at Longwood Gardens so much that we come back every year. We always make an evening of it - starting with dinner and then enjoying the sights. We were, however, very displeased with this year's change to the dining. In the past dining at Longwood has been very organized despite... More

Visited the gardens for the Christmas display. What a beautiful way to spend the afternoon/evening. Dress warm if you plan to walk the gardens at night.

Longwood Gardens is a wonderful place to visit , were you can find works of art through gardening of plants and trees. I was impressed with the Orchid Extravaganza and how the staff integrated each planting with finesse. Take the time and join to enjoy what the DuPont Family started.....

We have gone two of the last three years and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves both times. The greenery is, as to be expected, wonderful. The lights steal the show. It is simply beautiful throughout - inside and outside Breathtakingly so in some areas. Our advice would be to go after dusk. Give yourself at least 90 minutes to 2 hours before... More
