Directions for getting to BHFH by foot, bike, public transit and car are available from googlemaps.


We are located in downtown Boston, a short walk from all subway lines. We occupy both #6 and #8 Chestnut Street; the main entrance is at #8.

There are multiple Chestnut Streets in Boston; when using GPS, use the zip code 02108 to ensure you get the correct address.

Driving and parking are difficult in downtown Boston; if you have the choice, we recommend leaving your car behind or parking at the end of a subway line: Alewife (from the west and north), Braintree (from the south) or Riverside (from the west).


There is no on-street parking at Beacon Hill Friends House. The Boston Common Garage offers hourly and overnight parking. During the day, there are some meters available for up to two hours on Charles Street and Beacon Street.
