Peterborough Cathedral is an inspiring place and we do hope that you will be able to visit us soon and experience this great Cathedral Church for yourself.
Peterborough Cathedral is one of the finest Norman cathedrals in England. Founded as a monastic community in 654 AD, it became one of the most significant medieval abbeys in the country, the burial place of two queens and the scene of Civil War upheavals.
The Cathedral and its Precincts are open from Morning Prayer until Evensong every day except Boxing Day. Visitors are welcome whenever we are open, but are asked to sit quietly or join the congregation if a service is in progress. The best time for sightseeing visits is 9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Saturday and 12.00pm to 3.00pm on Sunday.
