Create an itinerary including Trinity Church
Erected in the 19th century, Trinity Church remains one of Boston's most famous places of worship. The current complex, built between 1872 and 1877, was designed by Henry Hobson Richardson and is considered both the birthplace and archetype of the Richardsonian Romanesque style of architecture. It is characterized by its clay roof, use of rough stone, heavy arches, and large tower. Inside you can find a number of colorful murals that cover over 2,000 sq m (21,5000 sq ft), all of which are works of American artists. Take a guided tour to learn more about the history and architecture of this beloved Boston institution. Tours are offered daily; children 15 and under are free with a paying adult. Trinity Church is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

  • Beautiful, beautiful church. I suggest going to their website for a virtual tour first and then take the nearly identical audio tour on site. Well worth a visit. Allow about an hour.

  • Beautiful building we would have loved to tour. Unfortunately the doors are locked. Unsure if there are tours.

  • Can't speak about the service. But architecturally this church is exquisite. Stained glass. Carved wood and marble. Statues along with the crewel worked family kneeling stools, make this a must see on your list
  • Had the honor to attend the Easter Service in this majestic Church. We went to see the outside architecture but found our way inside and was greeted by a very welcoming women who sat us. So very divine indeed!
  • We wanted to visit the beautiful Trinity Church of which we had heard so much about. But we were shocked to find that out that we had to buy a ticket in order to enter and look around. In a church??? They should be free and open to all, I never had this happen before, quite disappointing.
  • One of the most iconic buildings in Boston, I highly recommend visiting this absolute beautiful building during your stay. Plus with the John Hancock building right behind it, it is surely an amazing sight!
  • This is amazing… the contrast of the old church and the modern building! You cannot miss this place in Boston.
