Archived Event

£5 adults, £3 concessions

Your tour guide is a Victorian policeman who will lead you around the city centre and tell tales of Peterborough’s grim past. Find out where the city’s gaols were and about the appalling conditions inside. See where public hangings and floggings took place – Peterborough was one of the last places in mainland Britain to have public floggings. Discover the history of the city police force, find out where someone really did read the riot act, and find out about some of our most notorious criminals.

The tour starts from outside Peterborough Museum on Priestgate. Tickets can be bought from the tour guide on the day or pre-booked from Peterborough Museum (01733 864663) or from the Visitor Information Centre (01733 452336).
