Whether you are spending quality time with family or friends, or just simply getting out of the house to enjoy the sun, there is plenty to explore in Boston, Lincolnshire.
If you’ve been looking at new houses in Boston, or already own a home there, look no further for an exciting day out in the sunshine. Here at Chestnut Homes, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite summer activities to visit.
Did you know? It may be one of a kind to our new homeowners in Boston, but there are actually 36 places across the world that are named ‘Boston’ - 16 of those are located in North America!
Five fun summer activities near our new houses in Boston
1. Boston Belle River Cruise
Enjoy a calming cruise on the peaceful River Witham and The Wash, or opt for a longer trip out to sea where you might spot a bold colony of seals.
The Boston Belle has been cruising up and down the River Witham and The Wash from Boston for over 18 years now, since her relaunch in 2002. The Wash is one of the UK’s most important estuaries for wildlife. In fact, most years, Boston Belle River Cruisers, are able to see over 100 different species - that’s an average of about 60 species per cruise. Some of the sightings include a wide range of wading birds from plovers and dunlins to redshanks and godwits.
2. ARK Wildlife Park & Rescue Zoo
Visit the ARK Wildlife Park and Rescue Zoo all year round (except January) and get up close to their wide variety of captivating animals, from exotic royal pythons to ring-tailed lemurs and even giant African land snails.
The ARK is a wildlife park with a difference. It operates as a rescue sanctuary for exotic animals and is also open to the public. As well as the wonderful animal exhibits, visitors also benefit from popular indoor attractions as well as a large outdoor play park for children.
The ARK Wildlife Park and Rescue Zoo can be found just off the A16 in the village of Stickney, just eight miles north of Boston.
3. Boston Guildhall
The Boston Guildhall, built in 1390 by the Guild of St Mary, is a beautiful medieval building which is now a treasured museum at the heart of Boston.
Experience a wealth of stories, secrets and experiences throughout the building. These include the history of the Guild of St Mary, international trade with the Hanseatic League, Henry VIII and the dissolution of the Guild, and the foundation of the Corporation of Boston. Visitors will also be able to find out more about the famous trial and imprisonment of the Pilgrim Fathers.
4. Frampton Marsh
Blessed with a variety of freshwater habitats, Frampton Marsh offers close-up views of The Wash’s abundant birdlife. In the summer, expect to see avocets, redshanks, skylarks and whimbrels, or thousands of ducks gathering in the ponds in the winter.
Frampton Marsh is one of the country’s premier birding destinations and is dog-friendly. It also offers guided tours as well as three bird hides - two with 360-degree views, and has three kilometres of accessible footpaths.
5. Boston Central Park
Boston Central Park used to be a private deer park, until 1919 when it was purchased for public use, and is now one of the focal points of the town for families to enjoy.
Central Park offers a range of facilities including a playground, purpose-built skate park, multi-use games area, café and bird aviary. It also hosts a popular calendar of events throughout the year.
