Longwood is one of my favorite places ever. No matter the season, it's beautiful. They're orchids are amazing, the bathrooms in the conservatory are world class, it's a great place to wander for hours. I've been here a lot. Great for ingress too

Amazing!!!! Longwood gardens are a magical place. We visited during Christmas and the lights displays are spectacular, very professional and set up beautifully. We were amazed at how much the gardens had to offer there was way more than what we anticipated. The sing along organ was so funny and cheerful and the food is good and healthy. This are a must if you visit PA! Loved it !!

Longwood gardens is a true national treasure. As a person who would never expect to have enjoyed an afternoon at any gardens, I s blown away by the best, size, and impressive upkeep of this magnificent property. The gardens, medows, and indoor installations are breathtaking. The nightscape art instillation in the fall is beautiful and bizarre. The Christmas lights during December are the best you will ever see. If you're from Philly and haven't been here yet, do yourself a favor and make a day out of exploring the gardens and eating in Kennet Square. Longwood Gardens is absolutely spectacular.

I have a season pass and have been there for many different experiences. This Christmas display is very good. The Conservatory is so full of beautiful red and white flowers. Be sure to get tickets ahead of time on line at the web site or you may be disappointed if sold out. I usually get there by 4:00 and walk to the indoor areas first, then enjoy the outdoor lights. It gets very crowded so try to avoid Friday and Saturday evenings. If you live nearby consider buying a pass to enjoy all 4 seasons. The food in the cafeteria is very good.

This was one of the most beautiful places I've visited. There is so much to see in the gardens for botanical enthusiasts and casual naturalist alike. There are also fantastic fountains to discover across. The staff are very professional and keep the gardens free of any litter. You should also plan your trip for their 4th of July fireworks, its a blast!

Beautiful! Food is very expensive for those on a budget, saw a family tell their kids no snacks or hot chocolate because they only had $20. ( I gave them money so they could enjoy and have a wonderful memory together as a family.) Would have been nice in the outside tent if they had healthy snack options, there were brownies, cookies and soft pretzels and chips. 12/12/15. Very beautiful place to bring your family and to make great memories!!:) Helpful and pleasant staff!:)

The Longwood Christmas light show is a wonderful tradition that is kept modern with annually changing displays. Make sure you reserve a time and plan to have dinner on the estate at any of the three dinning establishments. Throughout the week enjoy live music and entertainment so check their website for a current schedule.

Since our 3 yr old was born, we've been members as we come here all the time. It's a great space for him to run around and explore, but the large conservatory really sets the place apart. By design, it's well-heated and a wonderful way to get out of the house in the middle of the winter. There is large kids area, but we've found he's happy to also just walk around and enjoy the waterfalls, fountains, flower displays (sometimes) and, ok, yeah, he does love the kids section also!

Our Bonsai Collection fascinates visitors of all ages. Learn more about the art of bonsai, and the history of our collection on our blog: http://longwoodgardens.org/blog/2015-06-09t000000/short-history-tiny-trees
The Japanese art of bonsai originated in China as the practice known as penjing. Early in Chinese history, trees and other plants were collected from the wild and grown in containers. The practice moved to Japan many centuries ago through social and economic interaction with China. Over the years, both countries developed various techniques that we continue to use in creating bonsai today. The Japanese word bonsai translates to "tree in a shallow...

There isn’t a more beautiful season to explore Longwood Gardens and all 30+ Gardens in America’s Garden Capital than during Spring! We’re just one of many Philly Gardens (all located within 30 miles of one another!) that has tulips in bloom. Make plans to visit us and all of the Gardens that make up America’s Garden Capital at americasgardencapital.org. #AmericasGardenCapital
