Top 14 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Peterborough, England - Updated 2023


The city of Peterborough in Great Britain is one that doesn’t gain a lot of mention from travelers, but the lack of mention does not discount what the city can offer. Peterborough is known as a cathedral city, a designation that was given by the ruling monarch until the 19th century. Located on the River Nene that flows into the North Sea, Peterborough has progressed through the years thanks to the advancement of the country’s railways; and also because the city is one major stopover for those traveling from London into Scotland via train. Today, there are a number of visitors who venture here to check out the architectural sights that date back to the 1200’s, as well as to experience the atmosphere of the northern English countryside. With that in mind, here are the top Airbnb vacation rentals in Peterborough that will give travelers a chance to indulge in the sights and sounds of Peterborough, the hospitality of those who call it home.
