Living In Peterborough
Located in rural East England, the city of Peterborough is on the up. In recent years, it has benefited from several regeneration projects to improve the area, increase the amount of commercial and residential property and add new cultural and retail attractions.
The history cathedral square, home to the 900-year-old Peterborough Cathedral, also received a multi-million pound transformation. It is now a vibrant hub with restaurants, shops, bars and a buzzing café culture. Perfect for a day out.
Aside from a range of cultural, retail and entertainment attractions, Peterborough’s great outdoors also has a lot to offer. The city’s proximity to the countryside means there’s plenty for everyone to enjoy, from walking and cycling to wildlife spotting and outdoor swimming. The city has also retained its rich history and is home to several historic sites.
As well as being incredibly affordable, Peterborough is also considered a safe city. Plus, it has excellent transport links in and out of the city. Whether you are in the city centre or one of the quieter suburbs, you can take advantage of the fast and efficient public transport system.
