You cannot buy any of the top of the range products in the Centre. You have to do that through the agents in each showroom. Being a visitor from the UK was amazed by the truly fabulous and inspirational styles and household accessories on offer in the large individual showrooms..

Just to walk around the place, there are some fantastic small businesses and larger showrooms inside. A bit out-of-the-way, but great during a bike ride around the city.

Wonderful showrooms - it can be overstimulating if you don't know what you are looking for. Great place to see high-end products. Kitchen Living a particular favorite.

Staying in South End

Neighbourhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
