Like Lincoln Cathedral, this church has links with the exploration and settlement of both North America and Australia. Look for the memorial to the Lincoln explorers Bass and Flinders, as well as the headstones commemorating the pilgrims. Take the tour of the stained glass windows. For a treat, look at the carvings from the 1390's under the seats in the... More

I visit this place often as I'm in Boston every weekend. This week I bought 20 bricks to add to their LEGO model of the church which is going to raise £100,000 for their funds. It's a lovely building, and especially of interest to me as an organist and choirmaster because John Taverner was the first organist here until his... More

Returning to Boston after many years a climb up The Stump tower was rewarded with an astounding panoramic view of the town and surrounding fens. A beautiful church, the landmark for invading aircraft in the war it still has the flood marks on the pillars.

I climbed up the stump and I love the view from the top I could see all of Boston and out towards the sea.

We visited the church today it is an amazing place . There is a tea room inside the church for a cup of tea and a cake. Then you can walk off the cake by climbing the 200+ steps to the top of the bell tower for an amazing view of the countryside. Just outside the church is the Guild... More

This is a parish church of cathedral proportions. The stained lass is magnificent. I wish I'd had more time to spend a longer visit, and to climb the 200+ steps to see the view from the top of "the stump".

Beautiful place to visit. make sure you take time to go up the tower- a long walk up but the sights are fantastic. Staff are very friendly.

Seriously under-estimated how long I would need to spend here to do it justice. Magnificent collection of misericords and other wood carvings. The more you look, the more you see! Also has decent toilet.

an interesting saxon church set in the centre of town, now open occasionaly as a cafe, but a total mess inside in need of refurbishment, untidy, dirty, foul cheap furnishings and carpets; a disgrace to the city at its heart. this needs gutting and redoing tastefully - without carpets, with wifi.

Thank mikedeath
