A Quick Visit to Peterborough

Peterborough is easy to overlook as a place to visit, and one full day is probably enough for the tourist, to see the Cathedral, the great little museum and perhaps the Nene Valley Railway. For those of us living in south Lincolnshire Peterborough has the shops that we need to visit when our local shops can't quite supply our needs, and it has the hospital we sometimes have to visit.

For me it is a fifteen-minute ride by Cross Country Trains, and that ride is the start of many of my longer adventures for I often change trains at Peterborough for London and for the north. More often Peterborough itself is the destination and I find the train the most relaxing way of getting there. Alternatively, during the working day there is a bus route which is more scenic but does take three times as long.
