Boston Visitor's Guide

The new Explore and Discover Boston guide.

The historic market town of Boston extends its welcome to you and offers a wealth of opportunities for you to enjoy during your visit here.

Even after 700 years travellers visiting the busy town of Boston can't fail to be struck by the size and grandness of Boston Stump. St Botolph's tower reaches 272ft towards the heavens, look inside at the memorials to some of Boston's famous sons, and its American connections. Another medieval gem is the magnificent 14th century Boston Guildhall, where the Pilgrim Fathers were tried and held. Other gems include the 18th century Fydell House 'The Grandest House in Town' and the 19th century Maud Foster windmill the country's tallest working windmill.

Boston has always been a great trading centre, from the 12th century an important and lively port, and today a thriving market town still based around the medieval market place and its surrounding network of connecting lanes. Busy markets have been held here for more than 450 years and a excellent choice of family-run and independent shops are situated nearby, plus much to do and see.

And don't miss the RSPB Frampton and Freiston Shore Nature Reserves - outstanding examples of environmental innovation situated in the stunning landscape of the Wash.
