Day 1

Longwood Gardens is the living legacy of Pierre S. du Pont, inspiring people through excellence in garden design, horticulture, education, and the arts. You are free to stroll along the many paths through acres of exquisitely maintained grounds. A new vista presents itself at each turn: the Italian Water Garden, Flower Garden Walk, aquatic display gardens and many others, including through Peirce’s Woods, a collection of eight outdoor 'rooms' of distinct woodland habitats. Throughout the garden, you can expect to see various forms of wildlife including deer, butterflies, birds, beavers, bees and more, as you stroll across bridges stretching over numerous water sources on the grounds. Meadow Garden, in particular, features an elevated boardwalk, which takes 15-minutes to cross and presents unique views of the landscape and the flora and fauna that inhabit the space. Inside the Conservatory, you will find a lush world of exotic flowers, cacti, bromeliads, ferns and bonsai.

Today you also have an opportunity to hear The Longwood Carillon, an instrument that spans the ages. Crafted in The Netherlands, it features 62 cast bells that ring throughout the Gardens.

There is a self-service cafe and full-service dining room available at The Terrace (a leisurely 10 minute walk from the Visitor Center) where you may purchase your lunch. You may also plan to visit the gift shop before we depart.

Be sure to dress for the outdoors; this tour is rain or shine.
