Boston station is the only rail hub in the Lincolnshire town and serves around 200,000 passengers each year. It is located just outside the town centre and is less than one mile away from the Blackfriars Theatre, Boston Guildhall and the town's football stadium on York Street. Just to the south of the station is Boston Docks. Trains to Boston operate from Nottingham (via Sleaford) to the west and the seaside resort of Skegness to the north-west. The first railway in the town opened in the 1840s and for a period it was possible to catch a train to Boston from as far away as London. However, since the 1960s the number of operating trains from Boston has fallen due to the opening of new northern line via Doncaster. The outside of the station has retained its Victorian style and features a number of distinctive stone arches.
