Boston is positioned on the East Coast and the Wash and is between Skegness and Spalding. Bostons Church, St. Botolphs has been described as Majestic, magnificent, so high and mighty, Boston Stump -  a giant amongst churches.

Even after 700 years travellers visiting the busy town of Boston can't fail to have been struck by the size and grandness of The Boston Stump. St Botolph's tower reaches 272ft towards the heavens, an outstanding monument to medieval stone masons. Look inside at the memorials to some of Bostons famous sons, and its American connections.

Boston has always been a great trading centre. From the 13th century a lively port, and today a thriving market town. Busy markets have been held here for more than 450 years, now twice weekly - with fresh food auctions and sales of everything from bicycles and tools to plants and antiques. An excellent choice of family run and independent shops are situated nearby, plus much to do and see. Explore the town's medieval street pattern with two main streets following the river either side, smaller lanes and alleys run in between making for a compact  town where everything is accessible by foot. Find cosy places to eat, take in the rich history. There are sports and leisure, tours and theatre, and throughout the year a full calendar of events.

Nearby, don't miss the RSPB Freiston Shore reserve and Boston Wash Banks, an outstanding example of environmental innovation. The Maud Foster Mill is the country's tallest working windmill - see it at work and climb to the top for some wonderful views.
