Flying High…

It’s all steam ahead at Nene Valley Railway today as the Flying Scotsman fills up for its first journey from Wansford to Peterborough... Seats A5 and A6 taken on this once of a lifetime chance of riding behind the grand Lady herself. There’s a Scott’s band playing with the bagpipes as a great send off. An area with memorabilia along with a few stalls too. The carriages are old style so you’ll really feel like you’ve stepped back in tune. In fact a pat on the back for all the NVR staff who do a fantastic job of keeping

Embankment Photo Walk

2018-09-01T15:00:32+00:00September 1st, 2018|Days Out, Fun-for-all, General, Summer|

A slow walk along the embankment on a sunny day really does give a sense of peace and quiet, warmth and just a chilled time to while the hours away. Walking past people feeding the ducks and swans, fishing on the side of the River Nene, the different colours of the barges moored and travelling passed. Even going across to the Fletton Quays build to get some lovely shots from there, makes for a nice photographic walk. The swans are an icon for Peterborough's River Nene and today they were in abundance, mainly as they were being fed. The

Classic & Vintage Cars

2018-09-01T14:30:16+00:00September 1st, 2018|Days Out, Fun-for-all, General, Summer|

It's a lovely warm day today and where better to have a wander around than the embankment at the Peterborough Classic & Vintage Car Festival. It's on today and tomorrow with a host of vehicles and motorcycles to see. I took a quick nosey to see who and what was down there... First call was the Peterborough Visitor Centre where the lovely Tracy was giving out the official brochures (just £1 and the money goes to charity) that will tell you all about the exhibitors over this weekend. There are a few stalls for you to walk round which

Being ‘Posh’ at The Posh

So someone said to the non-football fan, "you're going to watch football - have you bumped your head?" well actually that's another story but..... Yes We Love Peterborough are at Peterborough United football friendly today against Bolton.   With some 'extra special' tickets today we were given a stadium tour by the lovely Tommy Robson, a really lovely man, full of the joys and jokes of football and life. An excellent celebrity to be given a history with. From one side of the stadium to the other, even non-football fans can be interested.   The pitch is a gleaming

Gin & Tonic Sir?

2018-07-16T09:52:23+00:00July 14th, 2018|Adults Only, Days Out, Events, Uniqueness|

It's a gloriously sunny and hot day as we join the end of a surprisingly long queue outside Peterborough Train Station, we weren't sure what to expect except to look for a blue gazebo. We patiently waited as an offer of extra tokens was brought to us by one member of the Gin Train staff. You have to buy tokens if you want to be able to purchase extra gins and tonics or other drinks when you are onboard as the staff will not be able to deal with individual payments of cash. Not a bad idea but if

Out & About – Sunday Travels

2018-02-13T21:13:56+00:00February 13th, 2018|Days Out, Fun-for-all, Great For Kids, Summer|

It's another Sunday with not a lot to do and for some, it's usually a walk around the town centre with the same-old, same-old. It's time for a change. So, We Love Peterborough decided to take a drive out and see where we could go that wasn't very far but something new to do. We piled into the car and decided to take a drive towards the Deepings umming and ahhing as to whether the Deepings were classed as being in the Peterborough region.... we decided that it was a 'yes', even if some parts of it are in Lincolnshire, but
