About Peterborough

Peterborough is a cathedral city located in the UK county of Cambridgeshire. It is situated in the east, on the River Nene, surrounded by flat Fenland, with some parts being below sea level. It is said to be one of the hardest places in England to travel around if you don't have access to a car. Peterborough's public transport infrastructure has its weaknesses, so if you are a visitor to the city, it is probably best to hire a car if you want to get out and about to explore the surrounding area.

Peterborough is easily accessed from the A1 by car. For visitors arriving by train, Peterborough station is situated on the East Coast railway line.
