From market town to industrial centre
The city of Peterborough is home to a perfect blend of historical and contemporary culture. Located on the River Nene in Cambridgeshire, its rich Bronze Age roots can still be explored at Flag Fen: a fascinating archaeological site just five miles from the bustling city centre.
In fact, many past inhabitants have contributed to the city's modern identity. At its heart stands St Peter's Cathedral, once an abbey plundered by the Danes, rebuilt by the Normans and closed by Henry VIII. Residents can also relax and roll back the centuries in the beautiful Victorian-era landscape of Central Park.
Having been declared a new town in the 1960s, Peterborough's population boomed, and since then a fantastic array of leisure options have kept locals entertained. Whether it's splashing the cash in one of the three shopping centres, taking a dip in the heated waters of the Lido or hitting the town for a drink and a dance, there are plenty of ways to spend your spare time.
