Stone Me - Monumental Peterborough Tour
Like many old towns and cities Peterborough has its share of monuments around the city centre – from commemorative plaques to whole buildings built in memory of a particular person or event.
Take a walk around the city centre with our guide and discover the fascinating stories behind many of these monuments and buildings. Find out who the Gates Memorial was built to celebrate – and why it has been moved around.
Learn why Lord Nelson overlooks Cowgate and how the bells of St John’s Church saved the life of Matthew Wyldbore, MP for Peterborough. Whose coats of arms are on the front of the Guildhall and why are they there? And what do they have to do with a turtle?
An unusual way to find out more about Peterborough’s past!
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).
