Through a year-round programme of events across a diverse portfolio of venues, Peterborough Limited is committed to working with local communities, organisations and visitors. Peterborough’s proud cultural fabric continues to thrive in the city.

3 Core Services

Flag Fen sits amid a unique Bronze Age landscape that has revealed a mysterious timber causeway and ritual platform made by people 3,300 years ago. More than 60,000 upright timbers and 250,000 horizontal planks are buried under the ground along with many swords and personal items given as offerings to the fen.

Peterborough Museum & Art Gallery is based in Priestgate. The Georgian building has served as a museum for over 70 years. It has two upper floors of galleries which display inspirational historical objects, from Roman artefacts to Jurassic fossils. Explore millions of years of Peterborough's history!

Peterborough’s library service runs 10 physical sites, a mobile library. These services allow customers to borrow books (including e-books, e-magazines and audiobooks) and use the internet for free.
