The best times to visit the Christmas display are on non-peak days, especially early in the week (Monday–Wednesday). Not only will you save money with our non-peak ticket prices, but you will also enjoy fewer crowds in the Gardens! To avoid disappointment, purchase a ticket for your desired date and time as soon as possible.
Longwood will make every effort to accommodate late arrivals, but we recommend you plan to enter during your scheduled time to better enjoy your experience. If you arrive within one half hour of your scheduled time you will likely be able to enter the Gardens immediately. However if you arrive more than one half hour from your scheduled time you may need to wait for the next available time slot.
No, timed tickets apply to entrance times only. You are welcome to stay until closing, no matter what time you enter.
Longwood Gardens will make every effort to accommodate guests without timed tickets. However, if all times are sold out then you may need to return on a different day.
Children ages 4 and under are admitted free and do not require a ticket. Children ages 5 and older do require a timed ticket.
Tickets are available at tickets.longwoodgardens.org or in person at the Visitor Center (tickets must be purchased in advance), or by calling 610-388-1000. Additional fees apply for phone orders.
