Peterborough's "undiscovered gem" offers magnificent Norman architecture, a unique 13th century nave ceiling, the awe-inspiring West Front and burial places of two queens to make your visit an unforgettable experience. Exhibitions and a timeline of artefacts in the Cathedral Visitor Centre within the Precincts tell the Cathedral's story. Guided tours of the Cathedral are available Monday to Saturday, with tower tours during the summer months and candlelight tours in the winter. There is a gift shop inside the Cathedral and a restaurant and tea room is available in the Becket Chapel opposite the main cathedral building.

Visitors can now explore the Cathedral using an interactive augmented reality trail with games and puzzles. Download the Gamar app via the App Store or Google Play before your visit, then see the fish leaping in the font, and re-arrange Jesus and his disciples on the Apse Chapel ceiling and lots more! 

OPENING TIMES: All year (closed Boxing Day). Monday to Saturday, 0900-1700. Sunday 1200-1500. These times are subject to change due to service and events, so please check this link before your visit
