The Cathedral City of Peterborough in Cambridgeshire, has a wealth of heritage just waiting to be uncovered. The 12th century Cathedral, one of the UKs top 10 landmarks, has the largest surviving example of a painted wooden ceiling from the Middle Ages. Visit Flag Fen Bronze Age Centre where archaeologists found the oldest wheel in Britain.
Peterborough Museum now beautifully restored has over 200,000 items in collections ranging across Archaeology, Natural and Social History, Geology, with new displays of internationally significant Jurrasic fossils, to the Art collection and new 'City Gallery'. Why not take a trip on one of the steam engines at Nene Valley Railway and feel yourself transported to a bygone age. But do not forget our natural pleasures - green open spaces, lakes and riverside or take to two wheels and make most of the Green Wheel cycle network.
National Express offer excellent connections to Peterborough and with a wide range of quality accommodation and easy access by road (A1M) and rail (45 minutes direct from London), Peterborough is ideally situated for a short break.
