Hiking trails available for early morning walks. Prepare for our visit to Longwood with Flowing Water, a documentary that follows du Pont’s inspirational trips to the great gardens of Europe as well as the unique behind-the-scenes footage of the recent Main Fountain Garden revitalization.
A delicious buffet style lunch will be served in the retreat center dining room.
One of the world’s great gardens, Longwood’s story is one of legacy, innovation, and stewardship. The Gardens are a living expression of all that the founder, Pierre S. du Pont, found inspiring, meaningful, and beautiful. From the intricate fountain systems to the meticulous gardens to the architectural grandeur, awe-inspiring discoveries await at every turn. Our day includes an introductory guided exploration of the gardens and plenty of free time to wander the many gardens, the conservatory, and the home of Pierre S. du Pont.
Dinner on your own - enjoy your meal at the Terrace Cafe' or 1906 Fine Dining Room
