Faneuil Hall Marketplace Tours

star-4.5
1,030 Reviews
Faneuil Hall Marketplace
Faneuil Hall is a bustling marketplace best known for its ever-changing lineup of street performers and its central location on Boston’s historic Freedom Trail. Tourists and locals alike flock to the complex’s shops and Quincy Market, featuring 30-plus food stalls selling everything from exotic coffee to fresh seafood and artisanal bread. 

The Basics
To experience this bustling restaurant and shopping complex—housed in a refurbished 19th-century building—stop by on a hop-on hop-off bus tour and watch street performers execute jaw-dropping acrobatic and musical feats. Grab a bite to eat at Quincy Market or one of Faneuil Hall’s many restaurants, park at a streetside café or bar, and soak up the festive atmosphere. Let a guide show you the best hidden spots on a city bike tour or, for a taste of history, visit on a guided Freedom Trail walking tour. Because of its central location, Faneuil Hall is an excellent jumping-off point for visiting other Boston attractions such as the New England Aquarium, the Children’s Museum, Boston Public Garden, and the Museum of Fine Arts.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Bring some change and a few dollar bills if you want to tip the street performers. 
  • If you have questions about the square, need directions, or are curious about nearby attractions, visit the information kiosk located in the plaza between the South Canopy and South Market building.  
  • Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market both have free Wi-Fi, but it may be slow due to the volume of tourist traffic.
  • Faneuil Hall is accessible to wheelchair users and strollers.

How to Get There
The marketplace is centrally located next to Boston’s financial district, the waterfront, and the North End. Limited parking is available nearby and some marketplace vendors offer validation coupons. The easiest way to get to Faneuil Hall is via the subway, also known as “the T.”

When to Get There
Faneuil Hall Marketplace is open year-round. Summer, fall, and springtime visitors can enjoy outdoor seating at bars and restaurants, and the weather can be ideal for walking and bike tours. Winter visitors can cozy up indoors and see seasonal events such as ice sculpture contests and holiday light shows. 

The Freedom Trail
Boston is rife with historic sights and remnants from America’s revolutionary past. Highlights include Old North Church, where the famous “one if by land, two if by sea” signal was sent to warn minutemen of approaching British forces; the colonial home of patriot Paul Revere; the site of the Boston Tea Party; and the Old State House—the oldest surviving public building in the city.

It's been many years since my banishment from Boston, but I've returned, ready to share my beliefs once more! Won't you join? We'll walk along Boston's... ahem... Freedom... Trail from the Massachusetts State House to Faneuil Hall, and I will tell you Boston's REAL history filtered only through Christ's grace. Though this is under a mile in distance if we were to walk straight, I have many things to say and may fall into revelation. Do give your soul 90 minutes to recieve the seal of the Spirit on my tour. I've grown to quite like the accusations of "Licentiousnesse and sinfull Liberty" thrown against me in 1630s Boston, and therefore my tour is for adults only. See you soon...
