Peterborough Cathedral’s purpose is to glorify God, to inspire people with the good news of Jesus Christ and, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to build God’s kingdom of love, justice and peace in the world.
Peterborough Cathedral is one of the finest Norman cathedrals in England. Founded as a monastic community in 654 AD, it became one of the most significant medieval abbeys in the country, the burial place of two queens and the scene of Civil War upheavals.
The governance of the Cathedral is regulated by statute, as required by the Cathedrals Measure 1999.
Peterborough Cathedral is the seat of the Bishop of Peterborough and a focus for unity and growth in the Diocese of Peterborough.
Peterborough Cathedral is a great location for photography and filming. Before you get out your camera, please take a look at our guidelines.
'Portico' is Peterborough Cathedral's magazine, usually published twice a year. It features developments in the Peterborough 900 Campaign as well as other news from the Cathedral.
