Peterborough is an underrated UK destination if there ever was one: this bustling cathedral city in Cambridgeshire is home to an impressive array of shops, parks, and historical and cultural attractions. From the striking Peterborough Cathedral to the ancient site of Flag Fen, here are the best things to do and see in this charming city.
Originally built in 1936 by Arthur Mellows, the former mayor of Peterborough, the Lido is a great way to spend an afternoon soaking up the sun or going for a relaxing swim. The Lido itself has a number of art deco influences in its design and houses three heated pools. The main pool is 50m (164ft) long and features lane swimming during the day, with the two smaller pools that are perfect for families.
