Peterborough Cathedral, Peterborough
Peterborough Cathedral, also known as Saint Peter's Cathedral, not only provides a sacred space for worship, but in recent years has also become the very heart of Peterborough. Admire the west front, the beautiful hand-painted nave ceiling, and the marble altar in the sanctuary. Venture farther and pay respect at Katharine of Aragon’s grave, marvel at the colossal central tower, and be sure to see the dramatic hanging crucifix that frames the choir stalls. Check the schedule and purchase tickets in advance to one of the many music events. A donation is welcomed on entry, and guided tours are offered at a small charge. You must obtain a permit to take photos in the church. Parking within the grounds is restricted to the disabled, so if arriving by car make arrangements to park in one of the many nearby parking lots. Note there may be some restricted access due to services and events.

Peterborough Cathedral Reviews
The Cathedral is a wonderful building, with some parts dating back over 700 years. It is well worth a walk around inside and a stroll through the gardens and surrounding buildings. There is nice cafe in the grounds too.
Such an incredible place! This place was completely in 1238 and it is still in amazing shape! The inside is incredible and the history inside of it is even better! Definitely a place to check out if you're ever around the area.
