The Vaults

About

Take part in a Vaults tour and venture down into the Museum’s cellars. Explore layers of history rarely seen by the public and hear the stories of the people who once lived and worked within the building.

Brought to life through projections and characters from this buildings history, will take you through 500 years of changing hands and uses. From the grand home of a wealthy Tudor family, to the city's first infirmary. Not all tales are for the faint of heart however, as you hear a selection of stories from one of Peterborough’s most haunted buildings.

The Priestgate Vaults are accessed via a steep set of stairs and are inaccessible to wheelchair users. Projections, flashing lights and loud noises are used during the tour.
Tours last approximately 40 minutes. The Vaults tour is not recommended for children under the age of 8.
