Member Christmas Visiting Tips
Members may visit anytime, but require free reservations after 2:00 pm on Peak Days. Reservations are limited, and sell out is likely. Member reservations are not timed—you may come any time of day. To avoid lines we encourage you to print your Member reservations at home and show them upon entry. Or, go paperless and open your print-at-home tickets on your smartphone prior to entering the Visitor Center for scanning. Gardens Premium Members and those included in their Membership level do not require reservations.
We offer free on-site parking in our tree-lined lot. During peak visitation times, free off-site parking may be used if our on-site lot is full. Transportation is provided between the off-site parking and the Visitor Center entrance. Please follow the signage and note the Longwood staff members directing traffic on peak visitation days.
Members Bringing Guests
Guests not included in a Membership require a timed admission ticket. We cannot accommodate a Member's request for tickets if we are sold out. You may also purchase a Bring Friends package, or upgrade your Membership to a level that allows you to bring guests any time you visit the Gardens.
Using Complimentary Tickets?
Many complimentary admission tickets are not valid on Peak Days during A Longwood Christmas. Check your tickets as restrictions may apply.
