Old North Church, Boston

(2,200+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
The belfry of Old North Church is where Paul Revere got his signal for the midnight ride. It is the oldest church still standing in the city and is classified as a National Historic Landmark. The whitewashed interior reflects light from the many clear windows. The layout of the building was inspired by British architect Christopher Wren, the man responsible for rebuilding London after the great fire. Consider taking a behind-the-scenes tour with the church staff through the crypt below. Inquire about tours at the church. Old North Church is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Boston Edition.

  • Great Boston Treasure. Freedom trail right to front door. Can't beat the location. And all the sites in North End. Beautiful in Sep after tourist depart. Nice stroll past Paul's statue and lunch in North End is wonderful. Very relaxing. Can't beat Boston for a walking city.
  • Great place to learn more about Boston's history (and an extension would be of America's origins). Loved learning about Paul Revere and the people behind the American Revolution. Lovely interior, would definitely recommend as a stop along the Freedom Trail.
  • This is Boston's oldest church where three Boston patriots famously lit lanterns to warn Paul Revere of the British soldier's moves prior to the battles of Lexington and Concord. If walking the Freedom Trail, definitely stop here for 10 minutes to look around. The interior is beautiful.
  • Nice church. We really enjoyed the Plaza and gardens around it. There is a gift shop and printing press nearby that are worth stepping into.
  • A masterpiece of history and architecture. Spend some time in here as there are a lot details to see that will be missed with a quick tour.
