Experience the Joys of the Season
Organ sing-alongs, strolling carolers, and performances fill our Gardens with festive cheer.
Delight in our holiday horticulture showcasing more than 6,000 seasonal plants. Outside, the sounds of oohs and aahs fill the air as illuminated stars twinkle above, colorful fountains dance to holiday music, and a half-million lights brighten the night.
This holiday season we pay homage to the Christmas tree with an imaginative display featuring traditional favorites and inspiring new twists. From festive firs suspended from above to towering tannenbaums created from books, stained glass, and other unexpected materials, you can’t help but exclaim, “O Christmas Tree!”
Outdoors, gloriously illuminated trees lead you on an enchanting holiday journey through our Gardens. Sip cocoa and warm up by our welcoming firepits, listen to carolers sharing the melodic sounds of the season, and relish in the beauty and wonder of A Longwood Christmas.
Take your little ones to see the Longwood Garden Railway!
Featuring miniature locomotives rumbling over almost 400 feet of track, this beautifully landscaped display includes models of favorite Longwood buildings. Located outdoors near the Terrace Restaurant, the Garden Railway runs during regular Gardens hours, weather permitting.
Longwood staff designed, built, and planted this scenic miniature railway. The Longwood landmarks are constructed of natural materials, from roof tiles of magnolia leaves to handrails of honeysuckle vines.
