Visit Peterborough

Peterborough is just under an hour from Corby and provides a great way to spend the day.

There are lots of things to do in this busy city, and a great place to start is shopping in Queensgate  right next to the bus station. With nearly 100 top name stores there’s bound to be something to suit everyone’s taste. 

Discover the story of the city at Peterborough Museum , where there are paintings from top British artists along with watercolours of the cathedral by Turner.

You can get on the Nene Valley Railway   just a short walk from the city centre and enjoy a delightful round trip through Nene Park – a must for families.

Peterborough Cathedral  is right in the city centre and is renowned for its medieval painted nave ceiling, dating from around 1230 and the only one of its type in Britain. You can take a guided tour of the cathedral floor, or for the more daring among you brave the heights of the tower for fantastic views of the city.
