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.

I am a non believer but love visiting old churches for the Architecture and this place does not disapoint. Boston gets some bad press but it is definitely worth a visit on Market day for the buzz of that, add a visit to S.Botolphs aka "Boston Stump" AND the Guidhall Museum and you have got a very good day out...

We enjoyed our trip to Boston very much and found St. Botolph's Church most interesting. The tower is a stunning landmark and worth a visit.

I am a regular visitor to the church, the architecture is wonderful and there is a great atmosphere. I often have a cup of tea from the excellent cafe inside and sit with it and soak up the experience.

Visited Boston on a tour of Lincolnshire. St Botolphs was the highlight of Boston. A beautiful church, I suggest paying to go up the tower for great views then have some tea and cake to recover.
