My first Christmas visit...amazing!!!! I really enjoyed the walk around to see the lights. Even in the windy brisk night air, a pleasure. Everyone should visit.

I highly recommend this attraction if you love history, gardens, flowers, etc. We went during the Christmas festivities. Plan to stay past dark to enjoy everything under the lights.

We visited on December 1 and can't say enough about how beautiful this place is. Make sure you have several hours to go through the 4 acres of the conservatory. Then be sure to come back for the Christmas displays which are extraordinary. The staff is so warm and welcoming, you feel like you are visiting family! Really worth the... More

Went to the gardens for the annual Christmas Display. It did not disappoint. The display starts out on a magical path of Red Lit Christmas trees and continues on to some of the best overall displays and lit up trees you'll ever see. The gardens are basically dark at night which is by far the best time to go around... More

I decided to take the wife on our anniversary to the Nightscape show back in September. We stayed for the weekend at the Fairfield Inn and Suites which is conveniently located about 5 minutes away and in between Longwood Gardens and Downtown Kennett Square. The Nightscape admission buys you a regular ticket to visit Longwood Gardens during the day in... More

Very first time ever to Longwood Gardens. You could just imagine the man hours of work that went into planning and displaying all the highlights of the gardens, the conservatory and other buildings this time of year. Be forewarned about the holiday crowds. The Christmas period requires timed tickets, allow for parking and getting to the main entrance. Enter the... More

My wife suggested we visit Longwood Gardens and see the Christmas display. Well I'm just finishing renovations to our family room and wasn't real keen on the idea. Boy am I glad we did make the trip. It is absolutely beautiful. The lights, the gardens, fantastic tree displays, the history and the very knowledgeable and friendly staff. If you don't... More

As a member, I visit every few months. Somehow an appreciation of the changing of the seasons is deeper here. At the risk of being trite, you really can "commune with nature" at Longwood.

This is our 3rd visit here for the lights and we were not disappointed. We started off in the conservatory where everything looked great then as it got dark we started our walk round the gardens. We ended the visit with a nice dinner in the café. A great trip!
