Peterborough Cathedral - 'an undiscovered gem'

With one of the most dramatic Cathedral West Fronts on the country, its three arches an extraordinary creation of medieval architecture, it would be easy for the interior to be an anticlimax, but it is not. The dramatic Romanesque interior is little altered since its completion 800 years ago. Particular highlights of a visit include the unique painted nave ceiling, the elaborate fan vaulting of the 'new' building, Saxon carvings from an earlier church and the burial place of two queens. An exhibition in the north aisle tells the story of the Cathedral.

Freshly prepared meals and snacks are available at Beckets Restaurant opposite the West Front and the Cathedral shop is next door. Disabled access to most areas. A range of pre-booked tours are available - details on request.

Burial place of Catherine of Aragon .
