Join Bruce Crawford, Director of Rutgers Gardens to celebrate Christmas at the world famous Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. 

Longwood Gardens is one of the world's most celebrated public gardens renown for spectacular seasonal  displays. At Christmas, Longwood dazzles with nearly a million outdoor lights creating a magical wonderland. There are breathtaking displays in the Conservatory; sing-a-longs to the Aeolian organ; outside fire pits; musical fountain displays and thousands of seasonal plants & decorations. Everything is exquisite – Longwood's attention to detail is legendary and you’ll get plenty of ideas to take home! The entire experience is unforgettable and what's remarkable is it's achieved over three days when hundreds of volunteers & staff gather to take down the Chrysanthemum Exhibition and install Christmas. 

On arrival at Longwood, a guided tour gives you terrific insight into this extraordinary garden and the Christmas display.  After the tour you set your own pace. There is much to see at Longwood and this time is purposefully left for you to craft your own experience. Whether it's a leisurely lunch at the beautiful 1906 fine dining restaurant or a quick meal at the Terrace Cafe and head back into the garden; the afternoon is yours to enjoy. Your Dining Dollars can be used at either the Terrace Cafe or at 1906. If you wish to dine at 1906, reservations are recommended. Book online by going here.

On the way to Longwood, you'll receive a Longwood Christmas map and Kirsty will give a highlights talk to make sure you make the most of your time.
