Peterborough Accommodation, Hotels, Tours & Information


Summers may be very hot and winters may be very cold but, the wide-open spaces, sparkling mornings and gorgeous sunsets are only part of the attraction of Peterborough and district, especially in the milder spring and autumn months, surely the best time to travel anywhere. History oriented folk will love the picturesque 'old world' shop fronts of the Main Street (take a bus tour, by arrangement, and discover why all the shops are on one side); the magnificent town hall with acoustics much admired by Thomas Edmonds, plus the much feted 'Federation Quilt', which has admirers from as far as Hobart Tasmania, Bunbury Western Australia and Bonu Germany; St Cecilia's the beautiful convent that was built for the sisters of a by gone era; a history walk dotted with Information Plaques and of course, the Steamtown precinct a microcosm of Peterborough's proud Rail Heritage. Travellers who love the great outdoors will surely admire the clean, open space feel as they drive around, and of course, linger in the district. Call at the Visitor Information Centre and collect a 'drive yourself' map of various interesting locations. Why does your car roll uphill at Magnetic Hill? Check how far you can see 'on a clear day' from Dare's Hill. A wide choice of accommodation is available, plus various 'eateries' encourage the traveller to stop and enjoy Peterborough's country hospitality.
