Went hre with a friend who has been many times before. the gardens are spectacular - we visited at tulip time - and I'm sure they change with every season. The fountains were being refurbished but I'm sure they'll be just as awesome. Excellent cafe and reasonably priced. These gardens are well worth a detour

I've been here many times, but we went at Christmas and it was more magical than ever. First, I applaud their ticket-purchasing methods. Purchase online, and hand your phone to the gate to scan the tickets. Easy-peasy. You're given a time to arrive so that the gardens are overrun at any one time (I can imagine Christmas is one of...

I would rate this above 5. What a great place to spend the day. Lots of walking trails for bird watching. Several flower gardens, fountains, the mansion, tree houses, and the indoor conservatory. The conservatory is filled with seasonal flowers, orchids, cactus, palms. There’s plenty to see for the whole. A photographer’s paradise. Very good café with a variety of... More

Lovely, colorful, varied displays. Large grounds. Relaxing way to spend a few hours. Both indoor and outdoor displays. Ample parking, with free shuttle service as needed. You can buy tickets in advance online.

I have been to many botanical gardens. This surpasses all of them. Lots of walking. We spent 3 hours there. Some of the fountains were not working. The exhibit will reopen in May. It was still worth it. The flowers were magnificent. The observatory was spectacular. I plan on going back in the summer 🌺🌺

We have been to Longwood Gardens several times over the years for the A Longwood Christmas, and we recently went to see the early spring flowers. The tulips are out now and are spectacular! My favorite part is the conservatory where they have the large pipe organ, the bonsai trees, and ever changing indoor displays of all kinds of plants... More

This was the best of my six day vacation to visit family. What a wonderful place to visit. So many different varieties of flowers, trees and colors throughout the different gardens. Our visit was on Good Friday with a lot of visitors there but you do not notice because the garden is so massive. The tulips were in bloom and... More

The tulip display was just beautiful. It was an orchestra of color. The cafeteria has great food and I highly recommend eating there. The fountain area is almost complete. It's going to be great. Visit during the week if you can. Its much less crowded

My wife and I celebrated my birthday at Longwood Gardens and enjoyed the gorgeous flowers and bulbs both inside and outside. They were outstanding! I highly recommend you visit there in the next few days and you too will be amazed and excited by the stunning beauty. Enjoy!

Every time of year offers something special at Longwood. In Spring, I go for the tulips, thousands in all colors and varieties. In Summer the fountains shows, and evening concerts. In Christmas, the extensive greenhouse is a decorative dream. At any time of year, the extensive gardens and landscaping make it worth coming time and again.
