Peterborough’s 3,000 years of heritage and its extensive choice of sporting, leisure, shopping and activity pursuits provide a dynamic experience that will exceed the expectations of business and leisure visitors alike.
A magnificent Norman Cathedral, boasting a towering west front and a famous painted nave ceiling, sits amid peaceful precincts just a few metres from the city’s exciting shopping and leisure facilities.
Visitors can enjoy a vast range of outdoor leisure activities amid picturesque countryside – including 2,000 acres of riverside parkland. There are plenty of attractions, events and festivals to thrill all ages and interests, including Flag Fen Bronze Age Centre, Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery, Nene Valley Railway, Burghley House, the Green Wheel, East of England Country Show and the Peterborough Beer Festival.
At night, Peterborough reveals a more vibrant character with theatres, cinemas, sports venues, pubs, clubs and restaurants competing for your attention. Extensive shopping facilities, including the Queensgate, Rivergate, Hereward Cross and Serpentine Green shopping centres, specialist and designer shops, high street stores and colourful markets, offer unrivalled retail therapy.
With excellent road and rail connections, including 45-minute high-speed rail link from central London, Peterborough makes a great centre from which to visit nearby attractions and picturesque towns and villages.
