Teachers are more than welcome to use the pre- and post-activities that were designed for guided groups. View a printable map with child-friendly highlights to help teachers and chaperones navigate the Gardens.

Lunch Space

Longwood does not have a lunch space inside the Gardens to accommodate school groups with bag lunches. We offer a Picnic Area located across the street from the main parking lot (2-minute drive) for Longwood visitors, available seasonally (mid-April through early-October). Please note that picnicking or bringing outside food or beverages (except water) is not permitted in other areas of the Gardens. Please plan on having your lunch before or after your visit, as re-entry is not permitted. You are also welcome to purchase food from our Café.

Personal Belongings

Please leave all personal belongings on your bus or at your school. We do not have anywhere to store personal belongings while you visit.

Visiting Tips & Garden Etiquette

We have compiled Visiting Tips and answers to Frequently Asked Questions to help you make the most of your experience. Please review these in advance and with your group. Be sure to review our calendar of events to plan your day.
