Peterborough Community Website
The City of Peterborough is located in Cambridgeshire on the main line about 55 minutes from London Kings Cross. There are good road connections in all directions using the A1(M) and A47. Our terrific Parkway system and Cycle ways make Peterborough easy to visit.
For shopping there is Queensgate, Cathedral Square and Bridge Street in the city centre with all the larger stores along with out of town shopping too. If you are driving in there is good parking all around the centre. There are often seasonal attractions in Cathedral Square, when there isn’t there are fountains.
The city is also the home of one of the biggest free enter family orientated live music festival in the UK, The Willow Festival. For runners there is the Perkins Great Eastern Run half marathon. Everything you would expect from a large city but without the traffic.
