This is a stunning church! I love the stained glass windows, they have such historical significance and great artists. I loved the old world architecture. The Church really doesn't seem out of place with all the new buildings surrounding it I will definitely go back and spend more time exploring it.

What a lovely building right in the centre of Boston. All the new glossy buildings wrapped around it and this the most beautiful of all. Inside you can sense the history and the church does organise tours as well

Copley Square is one of the loveliest parts of Boston and contains 2 architectural gems, Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library. On this trip, we only had time for the former. It is magnificent inside and out, and has been described as one of the 10 most noteworthy pieces of architecture in the U.S. Inside, it is just gorgeous,... More

I went to their regular Sunday evening service during this month. I've been to their Christmas mass two years ago and enjoyed very much so attended this time when I am around Boston. Still was very good and unique. But I must admit that one of their staffs was clearly not happy with the presence of first-time-visitors. Even though I... More

I was shocked and horrified upon my recent visit to Trinity Church Boston to enter only to find two docents who were directing folks downstairs to pay to enter. I wanted to worship for a moment, and pray......I was told I could still do this for free, but was made to feel guilty.......I have been going in this place of... More

This is one of the most beautiful churches in the US, we have been in Boston for two consecutive Christmas seasons and it proves to be a very special place. My wife an I are of different religions and the services are welcoming and worth experiencing, the beauty of the sanctuary makes it worth visit without a service. Take in... More

Not only is this church unbeliveable on the outside, the interior sanctuary will amaze you with it's profound beauty, not only in the architecture, but those windows are beyond imagination!

We have gone in many years ago and it still is a beautiful site to see. When we went before there was no fee but to keep the church open the members voted to impose a small fee to view the church. They also offer guided tours as well. Hope they keep the church open for many years to come.

Let me begin by saying the Trinity Church is one of the most beautiful churches I have seen; that being said, most churches I've toured have simply requested a donation, not charged a fee. The Trinity charges a $7 per person fee to go into the church and look around (you can take photos), but there was no one to... More

Outside, the architecture of this church is rather unique compared to the others in Boston. Inside, they offer guided tours during certain hours for a fee and you can do a self-guided tour of the main hall for a fee. While the inside is quite beautiful, I personally found it wasn't exactly worth the price of admission. The only unusual... More
