Attraction details
Owner description: Tower Hill Botanic Garden is New England's year-round botanic garden, a living museum of plants exquisite in every season. Several distinctive gardens arrange plants according to an overall Master Plan, that includes a Lawn Garden, Secret Garden, Systematic Garden, Cottage & Vegetable Garden, Wildlife Refuge Pond, Winter Garden, and more. Two conservatories--the Orangerie and the Limonaia--display non-hardy plants in winter, with blooming flowers in every season. Springtime brings more than a quarter million flowering bulbs, including a signature field of more than 25,000 daffodils.

We visited recently to see the gardens decorated for the holidays. The lights were pretty, they did a great job inside with various trees they decorated and the tiny botanical village on display. Outdoors was spacious and generously decorated. The draw backs I felt were the cost, at $17 for each adult, and the fact it was somewhat difficult to book tickets. Tickets for the evening lights event can only be purchased online, and seem to sell out quickly, so be prepared to book in advance. While I thought the place was charming, I would not be overly eager to return based on the cost and lack of availability of tickets.

We enjoyed a winter afternoon at Tower Hill. The greenhouses are gorgeous, and it was wonderful to explore the tropical plants in bloom, despite the brisk weather outside. The Christmas decorations were a treat. We did explore some of the grounds, and really enjoyed the Wild Rumpus.

Bring your hiking shoes and enjoy the wonderful trails, winding around woods, fields, meadows, and sculptures. Lunch on the cafe patio is a perfect break before touring the pristine gardens and conservatories!
