EXPLORE Peterborough

Don't Go Home Without

Get ready to travel back in time at Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery! Their collection includes ancient swords, Roman pottery and cool stuff made by French prisoners during the Napoleonic Wars. Plus, the museum is one of the city's most haunted sites. Go on a candlelit ghost tour if you dare!

Must See

Six miles from the hotel, you can gaze up at the three massive arches on the façade of Peterborough Cathedral. Inside this imposing Norman church, with its impressive stone pillars and hand-painted wooden ceiling, you can visit the tomb of Catherine of Aragon, the first wife of Henry VIII. Don't miss the Lady Chapel, which features delicate fan-like vaults and splendid stained-glass windows.

Must Do

Drive 12 minutes to get to the 16th-century mansion Burghley House. Stroll around the lavish gardens, admire the extension art collection and explore the grandeur of the state rooms. The house is open from March to October but the parkland is accessible all year round.

Local Tips

On a fine day, take a leisurely bike ride along the Green Wheel, a 45-mile cycling route circling the city and connecting to a wider network of cycle paths. Visitors with children in tow might enjoy the segment leading from the city centre to Ferry Meadows Country Park, where you can relax with a spot of birdwatching.
