Peterborough Cathedral

Peterborough Cathedral is known for its imposing Early English Gothic West Front (façade) which, with its three enormous arches, is without architectural precedent.

Discover the resting places of two famous Queens: Katharine of Aragon's grave & Mary Queen of Scot's original resting place.

Peterborough Museum has a wealth of stories to fascinate and enthrall the whole family. With amazing objects and interactive displays for all ages, the collections comprise over 200,000 items. The building, originally a private house dating from 1816, was acquired and donated to the Peterborough Natural History, Scientific and Archaeological Society in 1931 by Sir Percy Malcolm Stewart; the art gallery was added in 1939.
