Treat your partner to the height of Halloween romance: a candlelit tour through the eighteenth century crypt at King’s Chapel. The tour takes a small group through 21 tombs discussing historical burial traditions and legends about the Boston elite buried under the chapel. King’s Chapel has one of the few surviving crypts in New England and on Halloween Eve the historic space takes on a particularly eerie feel.
