Discover it for yourself when you stay in one of our Peterborough hotels. With so much to do and see, you'll be glad to head back to a comfortable bed to recharge and refresh for your continued Ontario adventure.
During the day, take your time perusing the extensive collection of The Art Gallery of Peterborough, which is dedicated to exhibiting the work of both contemporary and historical artists from southeast Ontario. It's one of a number of art galleries in the city, so visit them all and choose a favourite. If you're more interested in history, then Peterborough has something for you, too.
