Back in 1998, Peterborough became independent of Cambridgeshire, reflecting its own sense of identity and history. Peterborough does have a lot in common with its neighbouring county – which, by the way, is still close enough so you can enjoy all the benefits of one of the educational and technological leaders of the UK. However, it’s clear that this is unique part of the country has a whole lot to offer on its own, making it completely distinct from anywhere else.

Consider, for instance, the amazing architecture found here, such as the astonishing 12th century Gothic Peterborough Cathedral, or the stately Burghley House. That’s not to mention the awe-inspiring sights of Nene Valley Railway, Crowland Abbey, Apethorpe Palace and more. To gain an extra appreciation of that rich history, you can also check out any of the many fantastic museums found in the area, with the aptly titled Peterborough Museum taking centre stage.

This respect for the past is indicative of the community spirit which sets Peterborough apart. It’s a place with its own charms and personality, where its residents are proud of. That can be seen in its preservation of its heritage, just as it can in its thriving and diverse selection of local businesses, from bars, restaurants, pubs and cafes to the many shops providing for all your needs.

Alongside the shopping opportunities right on your doorstep, you’ll also find some of the most spectacular natural spots in England too. These include Holme Fen, a stunning nature reserve and much-loved fishing spot. Similarly, you can check out the astonishing Bluebell Lakes, Barnack Hills and Holes National Nature Reserve, Lattersey Local Nature Reserve and more.
It’s also a city with a great love of culture, meaning there’s plenty to evoke the mind as well as the senses. In fact, the community spirit and their cultural passions come together at events like the Peterborough Festival, the CAMRA Beer Festival and the East of England Show. Meanwhile, venues such as the Key Theatre and the Embassy Theatre provide plentiful entertainment.

Of course, this could only ever be an overview. Peterborough is a place of such substance and uniqueness that every area – from Walton to Gunthorpe – is worthy of a lifetime of exploration. However, there’s no need to stay in one place, thanks to excellent transport links connecting you to everywhere from Kings Cross to Edinburgh with a whole lot in-between.
