The Gardens are marvelous! I live about two hours away, but still keep buying a membership every year. The grounds are meticulously maintained, the landscape is extremely well done, the fountains are amazing, and the special programs are just unique! Definitely worth visiting! It is such a treat for people who appreciate the nature and plants.

My wife and I went there in md-December to view the light display and go through the conservatory. As expected, it was very crowded, but the advanced ticket purchase worked very well. Walking around the light display was great. The staff have done an excellent job putting up and maintaining all of the light sets. The train display was also... More

It's the perfect family outing; I was mesmerized every step of the way. The restaurant 1906, while pricey, is also fantastic. I've visited during tulip time and saw nightscape in... More

My wife and I visited this garden during their "Christmas at Longwood" light event. Wow! With over 500,000 thousand lights and over 100 Christmas trees around the garden it was something to see. That's the good news. The bad news is because it is so great, there are large crowds like the night we were there. Do see this but... More

I was behind the scenes regarding a businees demonstration. Was offered to take a stroll through the park on my own afterward. I must get back there, its beautiful.

We took my parents and they were amazed at all the beautiful flowers, A Lot of walking, but it is worth it. I would recommend going in the spring. Winter time is a little bit too cold for me to take the time to really enjoy everything.

Variety, expansive grounds, picturesque. I needed a scooter to cover less than half of the areas available. The colors and presentation are exquisite.
