Peterborough Cathedral is one of the finest cathedrals in England and was even voted one of the country’s top 10 landmarks in 2007

With a history dating back over 1350 years and the current building approaching the 900th anniversary of its foundation, it is a storehouse of archaeological, architectural, cultural, musical and artistic treasures for visitors to discover and enjoy.

The origins of the Cathedral can be traced back to King Peada of the Middle Angles who founded the first monastery on the site in 655AD. The monastic settlement was almost entirely destroyed by the Vikings in 870 and rebuilt as a Benedictine Abbey between 960 and 970. The Abbey church then survived Hereward the Wake’s attack on the Abbey in 1069, and remained intact until an accidental fire destroyed the second Abbey here in 1116. It was rebuilt in its present form between 1118 and 1238. It became the Cathedral of the new Diocese of Peterborough in 1541 and it is now known as the Cathedral Church of St Peter, St Paul and St Andrew.

As a building, it has suffered a somewhat troubled past but this is part of what gives our Cathedral such a rich and wonderful heritage, as well as its blend of diverse and interesting architecture, religious artifacts, stories and legends.
