What history! Got there before the grounds closed, but the posted times of tours had changed from what we were given. So we missed the tour, BUT they were nice enough to let us walk ourselves through the auditorium for free and a young man...More

Thank you for alerting us to this issue. We're sorry you were unable to take a Behind the Scenes tour - our winter tour availability is different from our summer tour availability, and we've made changes to the website to reflect our current tour schedule....More

A great stop along the walking tour, the garden and grounds are amazing. This is a great shaded spot along your walk!

One if by land... Amazing to see how high and narrow the lantern tower "is." There was a nice chocolate exhibit when we visited and an actor, portraying Emerson.

Went here as part of a sightseeing trip. Was interesting. Walked around. Please know it costs to visit the church. But the freedom trail is free and well layed out.

On the grounds of the Old North Church is a Memorial Garden in honor of fallen Americans in Afghanistan and Iraq. If you are visiting the church, I highly recommend you take time to go and see the Memorial Garden as well.

There are pictures and historical facts inside of the church which makes the church more interesting. You get to learn about the people in the 1700's and there is a timeline too.

The night before got online and still got tickets for the crypt and the belltower special tour. It was great and the guide was fantastic. Then went to the chocolate place, the gift shop and of course into the church itself.

We enjoyed our visit. Beautiful church with lots of history. The organ above was magnificent. Interesting views of the pews and what families used them.

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

The Freedom Trail is 2.5 miles and if you stop at each of the historic sites to see them it takes 5-6 hours. The Old North Church can be seen in a self guided tour in 15-20 minutes. They do have a guided crypt and bell... More
