Peterborough is an old city dating back to the Bronze Age. Documentary evidence of its existence start in the second century AD. Originally founded as a monastery in AD 655, Peterborough Cathedral was rebuilt between 1118 and 1375 and is one of the most intact large Norman churches in England - despite being ransacked during the Civil War! There are various historical sites and museums dotted around the city.

The city also has ample shopping opportunities, including the Queensgate Centre which contains more than 90 stores.
