About the cathedral
The Cathedral’s primary function is to provide a sacred space for the worship of God but, as well as being a living and working centre for Christianity, it has become in recent years the very heart of Peterborough, the home of its people and a very special place for all to enjoy regardless of faith.
There is so much to see here that there is something for everyone – whether you are interested in romanesque or gothic architecture, wish to pay your respects at Katharine of Aragon’s grave, wonder at our medieval Nave ceiling (the only one of its kind), attend one of our magnificent music events or whether you simply want somewhere to go for a little bit of peace.
The Cathedral is an Enjoy England Quality Assured Visitor Attraction and is visited by approximately 90,000 people per year. The Cathedral is open for visiting 364 days a year (closed on Boxing Day).
