Set in the heart of Lincolnshire’s dramatic Fenland, Boston UK is immersed in history. This classic market town is a gem found on the edge of the famous Wash, making it the perfect base for a short break to the area.
Boston was once a centre of trade, and second only to London in the United Kingdom. Much of the rich history of the town is still evident today as visitors navigate their way around the tapestry of streets and walkways. The spire of “The Stump” (St. Botolph’s Church) can be seen from miles around and is a must visit. Nearby, Boston Guildhall is a magnificent medieval building built in the 1390’s and is now a fascinating visitor attraction.
No market town is complete without it’s weekly markets. Wednesday and Saturdays are when Boston’s take place, making it ideal for both for a mid-week break or a weekend. The Medieval Lanes are filled with independent shops and many of your favourite High Street stores can be found in Pescod Square, the town’s main shopping area. An eclectic mix of English and European restaurants and cafes mean there are plenty of places to eat. For evening entertainment, look out for events at Blackfriars Theatre and Arts Centre. Around Boston you’ll find yet more heritage with Hussey Tower, two RSPB Nature Reserves waterways (Freiston Shore and Frampton Marsh) and within easy reach is the coastal resort of Skegness. However, Boston Lincolnshire is much more than it’s principal town. The surrounding area is home to a diverse and thriving community of villages, wildlife, and agriculture.
