Many ancient cities still retain their traditional markets, but none so well as Boston, whose Wednesday and Saturday markets are now quite famous and attract visitors from all over the UK and abroad to the marketplace overlooked by the stunning medieval architecture of St Botolph’s Church, locally known as ‘The Stump’ and visible for miles around across the flat countryside that surrounds the town.

Boston is where The Pilgrim Fathers were tried and sent to prison before their eventual departure to the New World from Plymouth. Take a trip to the Boston Guildhall Museum to learn more about their story and the history of this city. Other sites to visit include the Maud Foster Mill, one of the tallest working windmills in England. Also, get a glimpse of an 18 Century Merchant’s life at Fydell House, home of a prosperous wine merchant and now open to the public.

There are some delightful villages and walks surrounding Boston. The Royal Air Force’s ‘Battle of Britain Memorial Flight is stationed at RAF Conningsby – so holiday cottage visitors here can expect an occasional World War II Spitfire, Hurricane or Lancaster Bomber flypast. Alternatively, see them at the airfield Visitor Centre and share the day with a walk and picnic in the nearby Tattershall Lakes Country Park. Bird lovers will also enjoy visits to the RSPB Nature Reserves at Frampton March and Frieston.
