Peterborough

Home is where the heart is…Peterborough

Growing up I always wanted to move away I never realised just how lucky I was to live in such a beautiful city! It wasn’t until I had my own children did I notice the little gems. I am so fortunate to live minutes away from a beautiful country park. Peterborough city centre is within 20 minutes and you can be anywhere in the city in half an hour!

Here is my page dedicated to the city I love and all that it has to offer! Check out the links below to local reviews/what’s on guides!
