An outstanding historic legacy

Overflowing with local heritage, Boston is home to a selection of stunning historic buildings. The Iconic St. Botolph’s Church (known locally as the ‘Boston Stump’) towers the skyline as a commanding structure of impressive heritage, second only to Lincoln Cathedral as Lincolnshire’s outstanding historic landmarks. Explore the impressive architecture of Fydell House, a quaint Queen Anne-era manor house with preserved gardens and local stories to uncover within its walls. On a visit to the town, you can take a voyage of discovery and learn about the Pilgrim Fathers in the Boston Guildhall or uncover the town’s important legacy and cultural ties to Boston Massachusetts.

During the 12th century, Boston was home to one of the most important ports in England, contributing massively to the country’s international trade during medieval times. The town’s ideal location along Lincolnshire’s coastline and its vast array of succeeding inland waterways prospered trade through the North Sea from mainland Europe. This important history gives Boston its unique modern-day intrigue, difficult to find anywhere else.
