Celebrate the season with thousands of lights, new experiences, and enchanting landscapes.

Enjoy a walking experience outdoors through roughly 15 acres of formal gardens and surrounding woodlands, including illuminated plants, paths, sculptures, and fountains.

The magical scene is enhanced with fire pits for warming up, making s’mores, or enjoying a cup of hot cocoa or an adult beverage.

The most dazzling display of winter lights in Central Massachusetts returns to Tower Hill this winter.

Two of our beautiful garden properties will sparkle with thousands of shimmering, artfully designed holiday lights. Bring the whole family for a magical, fun, and safe outdoor experience – with food, refreshments, and more.

Marvel at glittering light displays indoors and out, uniquely decorated trees and nature-inspired ornaments, lush conservatories, children’s scavenger hunts, and more.

Join us during the day to explore the gardens, trails, conservatories, and uniquely decorated trees and nature-inspired ornaments.

As evening falls all of the glittering outdoor lights transform the gardens into a winter wonderland. Find unique items for everyone on your shopping list at The Garden Shop.

Night Lights is an annual celebration of the season held at Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, MA just outside of Worcester. Night Lights is an inclusive, secular event where visitors of all backgrounds can celebrate winter, light, and nature together. It includes two unique experiences: Day Lights (the day time experience) and Night Lights (the evening experience).

Night Lights is Tower Hill’s largest annual fundraiser accounting for nearly a fifth of our annual operational budget and welcoming nearly 40,000 visitors all in a month’s time.

From November 26th to December 30th, the property will close for daytime Garden Admissions at 3:00pm and reopen for Night Lights Admissions from 4:00pm to 10:00pm.

Requires non-refundable, pre-purchased tickets for members and non-members. Includes walking through roughly 15 acres of dramatically lit formal gardens and surrounding woodlands, including the Fairy Light Walk through the forest that ends at the Wild Rumpus.

Inside, visitors can step out of the elements to see more decorations, investigate our model train village, explore our indoor conservatories, access our Café to enjoy local fresh food, and peruse our specialty-curated Garden Shop.

Admission rates vary based on the time of day - timed tickets are required at night. View Admission Rates & Times
