About Peterborough

Renowned for its impressive Gothic architecture and as the burial place for two queens, Peterborough Cathedral is one of the main attractions. Both Mary, Queen of Scots and Katherine of Aragon have been buried here. You can still see the burial site of Katherine, but Queen Mary's remains have been moved to Westminster. The city's Museum and Art Gallery was built in 1816 and originally housed Peterborough's first infirmary. Now it houses a worthwhile collection of over 220,000 objects ranging from archaeology finds to information about the UK's oldest known murder victim. Burghley House is a grand country home that holds horse trials and other events throughout the year.
