Discover Faneuil Hall wheelchair accessible attractions, things to do, tours and activities for disabled travelers. Read our informative review to learn if Faneuil Hall Marketplace is wheelchair accessible and wheelchair friendly or if Wheelchair Jimmy recommends this attraction be avoided by travelers in wheelchairs.

In 1742 Peter Faneuil, Boston’s wealthiest merchant, built Faneuil Hall as a gift to the city. It is sometimes referred to as “the Cradle of Liberty”. It was at Faneuil Hall in 1764 that Americans first protested against the Sugar Act and the Stamp Act, setting the doctrine that would come to be known as no taxation without representation. Faneuil Hall is now part of a larger festival marketplace, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, which includes three long granite buildings called North Market, Quincy Market, and South Market, and which now operates as an indoor/outdoor mall and food eatery.

Jim’s Accessibility Comments:

I’ve been here a couple times and although it’s a bit touristy we had a great time. It’s best to enter from the side of the Quincy Marketplace Building where there are ramps (there are steps at the end of the building). There are several restaurant and food options. For the wheelchair accessible restroom take the elevator down to the lower level. Parking is limited and expensive.
