What to See and Do at Filoli
Though the Filoli House is currently closed, it stands as California’s most triumphant example of the Georgian Revival tradition and is one of the finest remaining country estates of the early 20th century.
Exquisitely beautiful and ever-changing, the Garden at Filoli offer visitors the chance to learn about the estate’s renowned horticulture practices or to simply enjoy the beauty.
The Estate Trail
Visitors can experience Filoli through this mile-long self-guided trail. Straddle the North American and Pacific tectonic plates while you learn about the San Andreas Fault.
Check out the exhibit of Filoli’s extensive collection of bonsai that ranges from traditional juniper plants to the more unusual bonsai azalea and pomegranate.
The Clock Tower Shop is filled with cheerful seasonal and Filoli–inspired merchandise, clothing, gifts, and furniture, as well as variety of pots, plants, garden décor and accessories.
Enjoy our seasonally updated Scavenger Hunt! A great way to engage with Filoli's vast Garden and learn some fun facts while you explore.
Each week, the Director of Horticulture, Jim Salyards scouts the Garden for amazing blooms and features our favorites here.
The gardens were beautifully illuminated with holiday lights making the evening seem magical in the winter evening. We sat outside by a warm fire and enjoyed warm mulled wine. The interior buildings were beautifully decorated with holiday wreaths and Christmas trees. My wife called family and friends to recommend they visit these gardens.
I try to go to Filoli Gardens each spring when the flowers are cheering spring onward. The house and garden tour is the best way for beginners to get acquainted with the wonderful story of this beautiful park. But Christmas tours are also a joy with the house dressed up for the holidays. Lunch or tea is another joy. And do stop at the gift shop. ENJOY!
Super beautiful and relaxing flower heaven! Truly worth a visit if you love flowers and gardens. There’s a cafe for good and snacks. The mansion is also very impressive, decorated with paintings and piano.
