Travel Tips for Peterborough

Thorpe hall - Cromwellian pile.

by sourbugger

I was very nearly born here, but was switched at the last moment to a place up the road.

I the place should have become the main site for Peterborough Museum, after part of the grounds was sold for office development. It never happened, the council just trousered the money.

The place was eventually sold to the Sue Ryder foundation who run the place as a hospice. You can however visit the grounds, which are impressive and by arrangement some of the ground floor rooms.

Thorpe Hall itself is an example of a Cromwellian mansion - the only one in the United Kingdom still standing in its own grounds. It was built for Oliver St John, a member of Oliver Cromwell's Lord Chief Justice, in 1652. There is impressive wood carving in the Chapel, a the Great Hall and intimate Parlour.

The look of the place is somewhat unusual as the architect was ordered to borrow from the Dutch and Italian architectural traditions - and he thus came up with something quite unique.

The Garden centre, shops and on Sunday minature railway can all be visited.

I find I have quite a special connection to this place as various member of my family have been born, married or departed within its walls over the last 40 years or so.

East of England show.

by sourbugger

There is one point in the year when Peterbrough still pretends to be at the heart of an agricultural community, rather than being a sprawling mass of business parks and roundabouts.

This event is is the 'East of England' show held at the showground (about 4 miles to the west of the town centre). It is one of the largest country shows of the year and attracts people from all over the country.

As a schoolboy, you got the priviage of having one afternoon off in July to visit it - I doubt that happens these days.

There are also a number of other events such as Antiques / collectors fairs, steam fairs, truck shows etc that run during the year.
