This is an interesting stop on the Freedom Trail because leading up to the Revolution it was a church attended by people who were loyal to England and the King. It was closed on the day I visited, but the pictures I've seen of the...More

Informative and a peaceful stop. There is a slight donation request, I believe it is only two or three dollars per person, but well worth the minimal donation. Considering it is to help with the upkeep of a historical location, it is money well spent.

Taylor is a great guide and the history of the chapel is fascinating - Taylor makes you feel like you are there. The chapel conveys a kind of alt-colonial-US history, a perspective we dont usually get. Taylor knows her stuff.

It was interesting to see how the King's subjects worshipped. Glad it survived. Was surprised to see the governor's booth, very impressive. Unexpected.

Beautiful church with square seating boxes. Throughout the day they give history of the church and area you can listen to. There are multiple sermons as well. It is a nice little stop along the Freedom Trail.

The congregation was founded in 1686, the building dates from 1749. A bit of Trivia-It holds the oldest pulpit in continuous use in America. It is worth a quick stop.

The King's Chapel is a stop along the Freedom Trail. It's one big square looking building on the outside but is quite nice on the inside. You can take yourself through a self-guided tour of the chapel. I also like that you can drop in...More

We were fortunate to tour the church on a cool, rainy day so the crowds were fewer and the views (of the church interior) were amazing. So much history and the famous people that attended services is incredible. We passed by on a warm, clear...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
