Our guide to Boston Movie Mile Walking Tour

Take the Boston Movie Mile Walking Tour and explore the most filmed area in Boston. This unique walking tour of Boston Common and Beacon Hill will guide you through the places you’ve seen on screen and turn them into a reality.

On the Boston Movie Mile Walking Tour, a local actor will be your guide, leading you to over 30 area locations seen on screen while giving you inside behind-the-scenes info about the Boston TV and filming industry.

The Boston Movie Mile Walking Tour kicks off at Boston Common, a 50-acre central park in the city.  Boston Common, also the name of an NBC sitcom in the '90s, claims many notable landmarks in the area such as the Boston Public Garden, Massachusetts State House, Brewer Fountain, Park Street Station (America's first subway station), and the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. 

Movies and TV shows filmed in and around the Boston Common include Cheers, The Departed, Ted, Ally McBeal, Amistad, The Company Men, and Glory. One of the most notable filming locations on the Boston Movie Mile tour is the bench where Robin Williams and Matt Damon sat in Good Will Hunting.

The Boston Movie Mile Walking Tour also takes you throughout the beautiful Beacon Hill area. You'll stop by the Boston Athenaeum, one of the oldest libraries in the United States, which can be seen in Civil Action and With Honors.  From there, you'll pass through numerous filming locations and side streets including Acorn Street, the most photographed street in Boston. TV shows and movies filmed around Beacon Hill include The Thomas Crown Affair, Boondock Saints, and What's the Worst That Can Happen? The Departed, MTV's Real World, and Blown Away.

The tour ends at one of Boston’s most famous locations: the Cheers bar. Also known as the Bull and Finch Pub, this neighborhood bar in Beacon Hill was used for the exterior shots in the popular sitcom Cheers.
