Overall Guide : Peterborough is a nice place to visit. It is quite a small city however it provides a very good variety of things to do. Its quite a safe area to live in. The things you have to visit is the... more shopping centre called Queesgate, the massive Ice Rink, the gorgeous county park Ferry Meadows and the beautiful Cathedral, this is where Katherine of Aragon was buried (Henry the 8th's wife) Overall I would say you should visit Peterborough because it is a nice place to take the family for a day :)
Not to be missed Ferry Meadows , Queensgate , Ice Rink

Overall Guide : It's a nice place. Quite a small city but provides a good variety of things to do. I'd say it is very safe. Of course this theory shouldn't be tested. Transport is good. I would say it depends on the... more area of Peterborough you are in to how affordable it is. Westwood park road is by far the most expensive. Very nice place.
Not to be missed Nice city , Cathedral , Queensgate
