Botanical Beauty In The Brandywine Valley

Longwood Gardens is everything that Pierre S. du Pont found inspiring, meaningful, and beautiful. From its intricate fountain systems to the 1,077 acres of stunning gardens to the architectural grandeur, awe-inspiring discoveries await you at every turn. Enjoyed by more than a million guests every year, you'll find gorgeous seasonal floral exhibits, family events, classes and workshops, spectacular live music and theater performances and delicious dining in three different restaurants throughout the estate. Spend a day (or two) exploring everything Longwood has to offer and see if you can envision a world as beautiful as Pierre S. du Pont did when he created this famous American botanical garden.
