Boston Holidays

Beyond Boston's modern sheen is a historic city composed of elegant brownstone townhouses and fashionable red-brick walkways that wind past some of the most historic landmarks in New England. Stroll through the student-dense area of Harvard Square, passing by the marketplaces lining the streets that surround its world-renowned university.

Walk the Freedom Trail to discover the city’s revolutionary past and dine out en route with the locals in Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Or, wander through Beacon Hill whose cobbled streets are filled with boutique stores and homely bars. If you’re a sports fan, visit America’s oldest ballpark Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox.

Use Boston as your gateway to explore the rural delights of New England including the dune-packed beaches of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. Escape to romantic Cape Cod for lighthouses and unspoilt seashore, while just three hours south by rail are the glittering sights of New York

    "Sports fans should take a tour of Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox baseball team. Learn about the stadium’s history, visit the away team’s locker room and sit in the Green Monster (the most sought after seats in the park). Why not try and catch a game while you’re in town?"
