I am afraid I only had time for a whirlwind trip round and I should much like to have more time there.
The building which proclaims its presence most strongly is St Botolph's Church, better known as 'The Boston Stump.' It is the largest parish church in England and, building was started in the early 14th century. The huge tower, reaching 272 feet, was added in the following two centuries. I imagine the 'Stump' is a sort of joke in view of its height, although it does look a bit as though there should be a bit more at the top. This is part of its appeal.
Anything added to this would necessarily have to be virtually copied and there is a splendid website which shows some of what I missed. This is http://www.bostonuk.com/historical/sites.htm
