We were very excited to attend this concert by the St. Paul Cathedral's Choir, over from London for the first time since 1953. What an event. We had a delightful time in a lovely venue, on comfortable, bench seats with a well-mannered crowd. Just about perfect! If you're in Copley Square be sure to visit this wonderful old church. There...

A beautiful church designed by one of Boston's most famous and grifted architects -- you will see elements if its design in other buildings he created around Boston. You don't have to go inside to enjoy it -- the exterior is magnificent and it has become a central place for people who gather in the square or walk past every... More

We went during Holy Week so it turned out to be free but even if it wasn't I would say it is worth the visit. The outside of the church is an architectural beauty but the real sight to behold is the interior. The entire ceiling of the church and its interior walls (totaling over 21,000 sq ft) are meticulously... More

We got there late enough in the day that the tours were over with. The sign to the ticket place was misleading. Ended up walking around entire building before finally found someone to tell us where to go in. We were doing a self guided tour with our ticket but they said we could come back the following day to... More

We tagged onto a tour. there is normally an entrance fee to this church but during Holy Week we learned it was free. Stunning inside. Not as opulent as we expected. Woman who led the tour knew her stuff. Excellent if you enjoy visiting religious places, and it is just across the square from the Boston Library.

If you're going to see no other church in Boston, go see the Trinity and do take a look inside. I stopped by one Saturday at lunch hour and there was a free organ concert going on. We could walk in and out the concert between numbers. While sitting there do take in the beautiful stained glass and frescoed walls... More

Do not miss this!!!! The church is incredible and so beautiful. It's breathtaking. We spent over 30 minutes just taking pictures. Make sure while you are outside to take a picture of the churches reflection in the all glass building next to it.

Trinity Church, a magnificent Episcopal church with exquisite stained glass windows was built in Back Bay in the 1870s. Back bay was swampland, and they had to drive thousands of pilings in the marsh as a base for it. We were awed by the art and architecture of this beautiful church. Don't miss it.

This building has been selected as one of the 10 most important buildings in the United States by the American Institute of Architects and for good reason. Take the tour, it was only 7 dollars and well worth it. The guide gives a lot of history of Boston along with the history of the church and the architectural details. Don't... More

Every year at Christmas time we go line up outside and hope to get a spot inside to listen to the choir. Beautiful building, wonderful location, great tradition. We line up because so many people want to get inside too. Some years we have been turned away, other years we've stood in the back, and on those special years we... More
