As we came to the end of our time in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, we took a quick car trip to Peterborough, about 30 minutes north. We weren’t disappointed. The enormous St. Pete’s cathedral is right in the town center, allowing for a visit to this historic beauty along with a stroll around the large pedestrian plaza. We toured the cathedral, wandered about, and then grabbed a spot of lunch before returning to our menagerie.
- Entry to the cathedral is by donation, suggested £5 each. A photography permit is £3 (the first time we’ve run across a photography fee on this journey).
- We followed a TripAdvisor recommendation and walked a few blocks away from the plaza to Nata Lisboa for lunch. Mostly a coffee shop, known for its delicious Portuguese custard tarts, but with good sandwich and light meal combos. Good food and service, and prices quite reasonable.
