Tower Hill Botanic Garden is New England's year-round botanic garden, a living museum of plants exquisite in every season. Several distinctive gardens arrange plants according to an overall Master Plan, that includes a Lawn Garden, Secret Garden, Systematic Garden, Cottage & Vegetable Garden, Wildlife Refuge Pond, Winter Garden, and more. Two conservatories--the Orangerie and the Limonaia--display non-hardy plants in winter, with blooming flowers in every season. Springtime brings more than a quarter million flowering bulbs, including a signature field of more than 25,000 daffodils.

Bring your hiking shoes and enjoy the wonderful trails, winding around woods, fields, meadows, and sculptures. Lunch on the cafe patio is a perfect break before touring the pristine gardens and conservatories!

Hi Katherine, We appreciate your feedback and willingness to give Tower Hill another try. Twigs Cafe is in a brief transition period and you should notice a difference the next time you visit. Please let us know what you think when you return.

The gardens are so huge that it is hard to see them all in one day. It would be wonderful to get a membership and visit this area once a season because there would be something different to see each time. The buildings have different...More

Tower Hill is peaceful, beautiful and offers a wide variety of things. Not only are the grounds lovely, but the classes are great. I took a class to redesign my flower beds. I highly recommend dining at sunset. the view is wonderful.

If you love flowers and delicious lunches, this is a great place to enjoy both! We go at least twice a year, spring and late summer, to enjoy the seasonal flowers and scenery!
