View our Guide Map to getting around Boston
Welcome to Visit Boston UK. 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 with lots of things to see in Boston.
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 tower 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. Boston also has a wide variety of sports clubs and activities for all ages, which can be found at Active Lincolnshire.
No market town is complete without its weekly markets. Wednesday and Saturdays are when Boston’s take place, making it ideal for both 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 (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. Visit Boston UK will feature upcoming events, things to see in Boston, accommodation and much more information so make sure you Visit Boston today!
