Visit Peterborough and Cambridgeshire
The city of Peterborough hides a wealth of history just waiting to be uncovered. Visit Flag Fen - where archaeologists found the oldest wheel in Britain - and then fast forward a few centuries to discover our 'new' 12th century haunted cathedral with the largest surviving example of a painted wooden ceiling from the Middle Ages.
Peterborough Museum is the city's most haunted building - you can join in a ghost tour if you dare! The East of England Showground is the premier events venue in Cambridgeshire and East Anglia.
Peterborough has many more excellent local attractions including Nene Valley Railway, Dry Slope Skiing, Butterfly Park, Duxford Imperial War Museum & Burghley House – the home of Burghley Horse Trials.. The Holiday Inn Express Peterborough is an excellent location for guests visiting Cambridge, Newmarket Racecourse, Cheffin sales at Ely, Stansted Airport, Nottingham, Leicester and Stamford. Virtually on the border with East Anglia, it is also an excellent base for exploring the Norfolk Broads.
