Anyone who wants to revisit the roots of America's pilgrim fathers can easily fly to Boston (UK). While the small Lincolnshire town doesn't have its own airport, Humberside Airport isn't far away, and has direct connections to Amsterdam - a major trans-Atlantic hub. So journeys to Boston are simple, even for those from across the ocean.
Boston doesn't have its own airport, but that's not a problem for visitors. Humberside Airport is around 45 miles away from the town, and transfers by taxi will take from 45 minutes to 1 hour. Alternatively, various major auto rental companies are represented at the airport, offering plenty of opportunities for self-driving vacations.
Visitors coming from Boston (USA), New York, or other US cities can fly into Amsterdam Schiphol then take KLM flights to Boston (UK). KLM flies directly, all year-round and its flights take just 1 hour to reach Humberside Airport. So, transfers are quick and easy.
While flights to Boston (UK) aren't possible, flying into Humberside Airport makes a lot of sense. For starters, it's very close to Boston, and arrivals can be in the town within 1 hour in many cases. Secondly, KLM's services from Amsterdam Schiphol are extremely handy for visitors from North America. Travelers can take 1 hour flights to Humberside, which is generally much faster than flying into London-Heathrow or taking trains or buses. In fact, flying can shave 2 hours or more off journeys to Boston (UK), providing more time to get settled in and explore the town.
Boston is at the heart of Lincolnshire, and on the edges of East Anglia - two areas that produced many of the settlers who went on to form Massachusetts in the 17th century. So visiting is a fascinating experience for lovers of American history. See the Guildhall, where the original pilgrims were imprisoned on their first efforts to reach America, and head to St Botolph’s Church, where John Cotton preached before heading for the colonies. The church remains a beautiful example of medieval architecture, with stunning stained glass and wood carvings - which would have been present in Cotton's day. Visiting is an unforgettable experience for American patriots.
