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.
