If you're bored with the city centre for walking around why not venture out a little further and get some fresh views of Peterborough to enjoy as your boost your step count and re-energise yourself.

It's peaceful and it's quiet, especially early in the morning and you get to see some great sunrises if you are a really early bird.

There are a few stalls for you to walk round which

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.
