Peterborough

UK travel information

Peterborough is a cathedral city situated in the East of England that is a popular destination for many tourists. The main focal point of the city is, of course, The Cathedral Church of Saint Peter, Saint Paul and Saint Andrew, whose statues look down from the West Front. The cathedral features architecture from the years 1118 to 1238 and features three huge Gothic arches.

The Cathedral is famously the burial site of two Queens - Katherine of Aragon and Mary, Queen of Scots. The remains of Queen Mary were later removed to Westminster Abbey.
