Longwood Christmas Season

A Longwood Christmas

Now through January 9, 2022

Fire, Ice, and Everything Nice

This holiday season, wrap yourself up in the warmth—and the chill—of A Longwood Christmas as we showcase the dramatically beautiful contrast of fire and ice.

Set your spirits ablaze in our East Conservatory, where flickering flame lanterns, trees adorned in amber to fiery red hues, and a vision of warmth surround you. Filled with drama and fire-and-ice contrast, our Orangery features an array of poinsettias to a snowy grove of white birch trees. Find a “frozen” succulent fountain in our Silver Garden and stroll through the cool white tones of the Acacia Passage before finding yourself in our mesmerizing Exhibition Hall, transformed into a refreshingly whimsical alpine wonderland. The fun continues in our Music Room, dressed for a festive family fete.

Outdoors, our fire and ice theme continues with a half-million lights dazzle and delight, from wintery hues along our Flower Garden Drive, to a luminaria display that sets the Large Lake aglow, to our 200-foot-long Meadow Tunnel featuring nearly 20,000 twinkling lights gently transitioning from warm fire to rainbow to galaxy effects. Cozy up to our three fire pits, feel like a kid again at our festive Garden Railway, and find surprises at every turn.

This Christmas, opposites attract.
