Life in Peterborough
Peterborough is only 45 minutes from London Kings Cross – making it a comfortable distance to commute from the capital. It’s also right next to the A1 motorway, which begins in Aldersgate, passes through Peterborough and ends in Edinburgh.
In addition, there are many advantages to living in Peterborough itself, including property prices that are extremely reasonable compared to other big cities. The town has a host of amenities, from the Queensgate shopping centre with its 90 stores, to a wide selection of pubs and restaurants, as well as theatres and sporting facilities.
The area is peppered with picturesque market towns like Oundle and Stamford. The cathedral cities of Cambridge and Ely are also nearby – as is the beautiful local countryside. In terms of moving with a family, it’s well served with high-quality schools, and has a number of major national employers in addition to Thomas Cook.
