Peterborough Links Directory and Travel Resources

(Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, England, UK)

The historic and fairly sizeable city of Peterborough resides on the northern side of Cambridgeshire county, in eastern England. This is the county's largest and most important city, and its population makes it currently appear within the top 30 biggest cities in England, in terms of overall populous.

Peterborough is roughly divided into north and south areas by the River Nene, along which are many points of interest, such as the Key Theatre and the Grain Barge Restaurant, both of which are to be found on Embankment Road. Just a short distance away from the waterfront is the Rivergate Shopping Center, which opened here on the Viersen Platz in 1989 and being fully covered, is the perfect distraction when rain comes along and spoils the day. And when the sun is shining, you may like to pay a visit to the Peterborough Lido on Bishops Road. The Lido comprises no less than three heated open-air pools and dates from the mid-1930s, making this an unusual and historic landmark in its own right.
