Trains to Peterborough

Built in 1850, Peterborough station was largely responsible for transforming the East England city from a quaint market town into an industrial hub; the walls that traverse the leafy streets outside of the station are testament to the city's brickmaking legacy, which remains one of the main local industries to this day. Queensgate shopping centre is only a two-minute walk from the station, as is the 12th-century Norman Cathedral, the burial site of Henry VIII's first wife. Peterborough station's current rival can be found on the other side of town, but over the years, there have been a number of railway stations in the city. Peterborough East preceded the main station by five years but closed in 1966, and the short-lived Peterborough Crescent lasted only eight years between 1858 and 1866. The Nene Valley Railway offers 15-mile round trips on historic steam locomotives sourced from around the globe including, until recently, a full-scale version of Thomas the Tank Engine.

Station details & facilities

A 2012 redesign created a much easier-to-navigate station than before. All platforms are accessible by two footbridges, one with lifts and stairs and the other with ramps (located at the far end of the station). Platform 1, 2 and 3 are predominantly for southbound trains to London, and platforms 4 to 7 provide northbound and cross-country services. Platform 1A has a Starbucks and platform 5, another cafe. Outside the main entrance has cycle hire and there is parking for 730 cars.
